Not a happy camper!
Well the Doctor said something about tendons and ligaments and my calf and achilles I stopped listening (as I usually do:)). He told me not to run as it could cause permanent damage. So what did I do? I tried to go for a run that evening! I only made it 2 miles before I called it quits!
So I went 11 days without running.......... felt like an eternity. I then decided to try a run. I put on my compression sleeve and proceeded to walk 10 minutes, then run 30 min (slow pace) and then walk 10 minutes. Pain free I might add!! I am going to try a 12 mile run tomorrow. I will take it slow. I really need to figure out if I am going to be able to run the marathon in October or whether to start slowly and, keep the eye on the prize!!!!!
I must keep telling myself that the Ultra is the main reason for my training! Very hard to do!
