Good evening, all. I think you'll have worked out that the Streak is no more. The scores on the doors are quite comforting: 1645 days; or 4 years 7 months in the other measure; 8884 miles. Mean mileage: 5.4 miles/day.
2 August was my last outing but the sharp tug inside my calf told its own story. Abortive attempt to run 2 weeks ago. Now walking 20 minutes to an hour or more.
A 3rd? Let me get straight: some physio, plenty stretching and hot n cold.
Grrr! You're spot on, SB. The last 7+ years of Streaking, by definition, have been clear of major injury. I'm confident that, with caution, I'll have two functioning calves - not quite a herd - 'ere long. Thanks for your good wishes!
Just about hanging in - Streaksavers early doors, compression bandage at work, hot water bottle and Dynamint muscle rub at the end of the day. I've got through calf strains before and I will this time.....
