Me? A fortnight of Streaksavers, spaced to get maximum recovery time, icing & crepe bandage and plenty of deep, painful massage with my magic balm, Dynamint, have eased the calf strain enough for 20 s-l-o-w minutes yesterday and 30 in the same vein today.
Well down on my 2015 miles in 2015 but the Streak abides!
Not too shiny in my running world atm: got up to 20 mins, then tried a 30 but the calf cried 'Foul!' at 23. Back on Streaksavers: left it *very* late last night, 2330 hrs, and tiredness & carelessness conspired to send me crashing to the concrete - again.
A disjointed mile at 7am today and max time interval before another late evening effort. I ought to jib it, rest up, get some physio and return slowly & steadily - but I won't.....
Lily, JT, your comments are noted - yes, I persisted with 10k a day in spite of sore bones & muscles. The calf strain was unexpected but served to cut me back to a straight mile a day this week, with almost a 24-hour gap between runs.
Calf's easing up now - 10 minutes non-stop running at 11.45pm last night. Oh, and it was Day 1600.
