was having a good tempo run last night then 8 mile in felt tight in my calf, about 5-6ins up from my ankle, thought it may be my achilles, was close to home so called it a night. had a good dig around and pretty confidant that it is the Soleus muscle. it was very sore so gave it a good massage and tiger balm feels a lot better this morning, will take it easy for the rest of the week.
Would i be correct in thinking most achilles injures are just above the ankle. where does yours hurt Big G,
Yes it is always swim, bike, run, the swim is always first, it would not be very good for the body to jump into cold water after a long run or bike ride. I never found running off the bike that bad, but know a lot that do, and it is something you need to practice
it is the swimming that is putting me of trying again, did not really enjoy it at all. used to have to drive past the the swimming baths on the way to/from work so was not to bad, now it would be 30 mins in the wrong direction. may be better to think about duathlon.
