Went off on my hols at the end of August so didn't run for 2 weeks while away. Came back ran for a week and then pulled a calf muscle - rested for a week. Started running again - calf muscle went again (very frustrated by this time) - rested for 2 weeks this time. Had a small trial run (2 miles) to ensure calf was ok. Been busy kids, work etc. so haven't been out since although have done a couple of 5 mile walks. This morning however I got up put my gear on (it was a cold one and nearly turned round and went back into the nice warm house) and went out and did my first 5k since the middle of August. I am over joyed that my calf is now repaired and I can get out and run properly after 8 weeks of fits and starts.
Just to spur me on and keep me motivated on Thursday I am going to join the running club.
