After throwing around a football last week with my friend Jimi, I felt my calf just wasn't right. I tried taking it easy, but after crawling on my bike trainer and trying to ride, I made it 2 minutes before the pain was just shooting throughout my calf. It took that to determine that I am not just suffering from a minor calf injury. This is something serious.
I took the weekend essentially off, putting my calf up, icing it, and hoping that would fix it. This morning, we tested it out on a short run. I made it a whopping 10 feet before I crumbled. I am not going to run on an injured calf, so we turned it around.
Not going to lie, this really upsets me. I don't know what the deal is, but I know rest is the only thing that will fix it. As a precaution, I made an appointment with Cherry Creek Spine and Sport, which specializes in Active Release Therapy. Let's hope this fixes it.
