And just as the world was looking up and I wrote a blog about confidence I only go and get injurated*. 😦
I slipped on a paving stone and fell to my knee. This didn’t seem bad at the time. Just a wet knee and dented ego. The run home that evening was a different story. By 10km the outside of my calf was sore and I was altering my gait to compensate.
By 15km I’d decided to walk. I caught the bus home. Broken as deflated I nursed the injury. I couldn’t straighten my leg. The pain quite acutely sore here
Cue google searches and chats with my running friends and also one studying sports science and physio. I’m on day 4 now. The pain has eased. I’m wearing calf guards daily. I’m not running. I’m booked into physio tomorrow to get some more tips (there’s only so much I can get diagnosed over internet and talking).
Confidence shattered though ever hopeful.
Ultra is in less than 7weeks. Eek!
