Adbru- have u tried some sports massage for the calf? Having issues with calf 'knots' causing foot pain myself and sports massage has worked a treat. Cured my left leg problems in June and going for one tomorrow to iron out the right side, it's going to hurt but looking forward to some pain free running. I had torn quad muscle which has never been quite right since it happened couple of yrs ago and when had massage in June she popped something up where quad tear was, resulted in a houmungous bruise but have had hugely improved mobility in my hip since. So all good and would thoroughly recommend.

RF- marginally better now the DOMS from running after 3 wks off has settled but the original knot is still there and causing pain in foot. Only 4 more days til get sports massage tho woohoo! I have bruises all over my leg from foam rollering and tennis balling. I actually went out on my bike on Friday tho instead of exercise bike. Slow as hell tho, roads too dodgy here so stick to paths/cycle paths but u can't really get any speed up as u have to b conscious of pedestrians and dogs. Also doesn't help that I live at top of hill. So basically did 3 Miles dwnhill then 3miles uphill mainly in 1st & 2nd gear to get home. But enjoyed it. Have gotten brave and raised my seat for next time as it was still on the non-cyclist setting of ball of foot on ground while sitting on seat. So probably kill myself next time I am out on it. A little bit terrified. But once I get braver I may even go for proper clip in pedals and shoes.

Well the walk to the toilet this morning was interesting. Try to keep leg straight when sleeping and flex ankle every time I wake but still hop-along when I get up in the morn. Quads r also a bit achey after this wks walking/running/cycling after 3 wks of exercise inactivity.

Can't b bothered getting up got nothing planned today except housework and pouring bucket of cold water over Hubby.

Well I had nearly 4 wks of rest and there was no change in my calf knot/ sore foot as unfortunately walking & standing & sitting aggravate it just as much as running & cycling. Having to keep my leg straight all the time so it doesn't tighten up it's so bl**dy annoying. Roll on Thursday and sports massage.

After school today I have the Macmillan Cancer research ice bucket challenge to do so beware mwah mwah mwah

So what do u eat instead of bread that is quick and easy? I was having venison sausage, turkey rasher, mushrooms, tomato and egg white ( can't do yolks daily, kill my guts) but it is a palaver in the morn and costly. Never know what to have for lunch either, other than salad and get sick of salad.

Kind of glad to hear it's not just Hubby and I with those issues, altho sad at same time as it says a lot about our society that so many families having the same issues.
