There was me, thinking that by following the plan, and with more luck than I had expected, I was rather pleased not to have had any injury set-backs. So I go off today, in the rain, enthusiastic to consolidate. Just another 30 minutes, with all the advice taken on board about not trying to do too much.
Feeling good, but resisting any temptation to try to go faster, all was good until I got to a section [the only section] with a bit of an uphill gradient. Halfway up the slope - whoops - a bit of tightness in my left calf. Rightly or wrongly I kept going, slowing up [from my already slow pace]. Once I'd reached the top of the slope It didn't feel bad at all, so I carried on to finish my 30 minutes.
It's so disappointing right at this point - maybe a sign of how easy it can be to get an injury [although that seems a bit of an overstatement for such a minor problem].
Now, sitting down, I'm fine. But I know it's there when I get up, though obviously some movement is needed or it will cease up all the more, I suspect.
So what to do? Rest, obviously; anything else which will help quickest possible recovery so I can get back to my 5k objective?
