I should have known today was going to be a bad day when my toddler decided to start the day at 5.30 this morning, but it's got steadily worse. For instance I was outside the front door setting up the pram so I could take the toddler and baby to the park, I knelt down and felt a sharp pain in my left shin. I stood up and did a few stretches, and then heard the ominous sound of the front door slamming behind me - toddler had shut me out & I didn't have my key...
With the baby screaming (also inside the house), and after 6 attempts to get hold of my other half, I managed to persuade toddler to push his play table over to the door and climb up and open it. Thank god for that! However when kneeling down to pick baby up, I could feel the stabbing pain in my shin again. Also whilst walking to the park I had to leg it after the toddler who had made a break for it, and I felt my hamstring go in my right leg!
I'm meant to be starting Week 2 tonight and I've been really looking forward to it, so now I don't know what to do. When I walk neither leg hurts, but if I kneel down the pain in my shin is quite intense and I'm worried my hamstring will feel the same if I run. If I put some ice on both areas, do you think that will help? I'm tempted to give it a go and take it slow and see how I feel. If I feel ok when I walk it can't be that bad...right?!!
I've just re-read this post and not only is it incredibly long (apologies!), but my toddler sounds like a nightmare!!! ??
