My calf is killing. Anyone else got prolonged calf injury. can hardly walk

Gmy Joey

not calfes but still stiff muscles at front top half of legs, not an injury though, just aching and bruised feeling. The deep sticky mud section did for a lot of calf muscles, i saw several people cramping up in the middle of that beast.

Thats cos TC is on my pics Dillo - and the frozen water pics is hosted by somewhere else. These are the ones I took - don't think i found you though :-(

thanks for the link, red crosses for me too! I think I'll put Mozilla on the PC here at work. Watch me get beaten up by the techies (in there dreams!)

I'm not aching anywhere near as much as Monday and yesterday. Main ache was from areas I got cramp (groin) and a strange pain in my ankle, think I may have twisted it very slightly.

Although went out for a short run last night and felt fine so can't be anything lasting.

doh! thwarted by techies, they've restricted my ability to install things on this machine.

nfs " Nicko

i completed every section, but got a slower time than some that went around the evil water obstacle due to them being to cold, is that normal? i'm not bothered, just interested really."

Well if you did all the course then you have to end up behind the woosies at some point as they are sneaking in front.

NFS - The thing about Tough Guy is that although it is dressed up in a 'race' it is basically a very personal challenge and everyone has different demons to overcome. If you completed every obstacle then you hopefully felt very proud on picking up your medal. Apart from the first fifty or so when the marshalls are being more vigilant, the emphasis shifts to safety and participants are encouraged to do as much as they can but noone is forced to do anything they don't want to.

My mates and I watched as several people walked round all of the water obstacles and commented that they may as well have stayed at home and run a couple of laps of Richmond Park. To my mind, if you haven't got your hair wet (and your head frozen) then it isn't very tough.

I guess what I am trying to say is that time and position are meaningless at Tough Guy, unless you are in the top ten or so, it's how you feel inside about the achievement that is important.

By the way Nicko, thanks for the massage, shame we had to head off for the curry so soon.
01/02/2006 at 11:04
>>unless you are in the top ten or so

erm top 50 *cough*

I agree on the personal challenge...everyone sets their own goals and only once you've finished can you decide whether you met them.

Totally different goal next year. Might even try and be fit for it too.

And sorry I didnt stay around for the curry.
01/02/2006 at 12:46

I've been moved down a place....any more and I'll be 51 :((( sob
01/02/2006 at 12:51

thanks for reply, and you're right, i did feel proud to complete it...... and help drag a few team mates along when needed, i know i did a few times, i need longer legs for some of those obstacles!
