Well dear reader,
It all seemed to be going so well, the runs were getting easier & I was really enjoying them, I have a great selection of friends to run with & we always have a laugh & a joke on the way round. I was really getting into this after my set back a few weeks ago when I damaged my calf. Done a lot of running since with no problems, done loads of stretching & not a squeak from it.
Went to try for the first time the winter route that I intend to do through to April for my midweek runs & got to just under 3 miles & bang, my bloody calf went again. Hobbled back to the gym.
I now have a real quandary, I only have 6 weeks until the New York Marathon, clearly I am still going & I am still doing it. I realistically have no chance of running all the way round now. I will have to rest my calf for at least 2 weeks & think it will have to be a combination of jogging & walking now.
The annoying this was I was feeling great, my breathing & heart rate had dropped & I was running along at over 5mph comfortably chatting to Linda. I can't begin to describe how p*ssed off I am
It went just before the 3 mile mark
