You might want to see a surgeon about that.

I see a very good sports therapist.
No knives needed at the min.

Took a few days off last week to try and shift a tickly cough (which didn't work) so a bit down on usual.

Swim - 2 - 5075m
Bile - 1 - 42km
Run - 1 - 11km

I then broke my own rule of leaving 2 clear days between runs and did Parkrun on Xmas day resulting in my calf going pop on the 2nd lap having managed nearly 2 years without any trouble since the last calf strain. So starting the new year injured, overweight and pi**ed off.

What's wrong with the calf?

I think it's just a fairly mild strain but booked in with physio next Tuesday.

I had a spate of calf strains a few years back which I don't think I managed very well and hence kept recurring. I saw a physio last time and did everything they said to the letter and have been Ok since (2 years) but have regressed back to my usual self, I'm terrible for not stretching, warming up etc - my own worst enemy.

Calf injuries are curse. All too easy to ignore the stretching/foam rolling/warming up when it feels good.

I hate my calfs.
Everything else is working as it should... in fact some parts are ahead of expectations....
Flat out park runs I get but twisting repeatedly into right hand shots on a pad work out.... come on!
It's only strained and I can still run slowly 11kph so no more boxing for a few weeks I guess.
So annoying!

I wouldn't have minded so much if I was flat out at Parkrun but I was only jogging round having run on the Saturday.

Having said that Saturday's run was very muddy and at one point it felt like I was running in divers boots, there was that much clay stuck to my feet. I could feel my hamstrings aching after the run from the extra effort lifting the leg with each step.

I'm sure that contributed to the calf going but there was no warning, it just went twang. The weird thing is that it's always gone in the V between the 2 heads of the muscle before but this time it's on the inside of the calf so not sure what would cause it to go on one side like that.

The J word...that's a problem right there

I probably should have used the j word for the "run" on Saturday.

By most people's standards I think everything I do is jogging. I'm usually around the 10min/mile mark on longer runs and maybe 9ish on shorter ones.

The quality of the run is reflected in form, not pace...

Aye, it'll be a shame having to go back to work on Tuesday, gets in the way of training.
