At least thats what it felt like. NHS C25K W6r1 done my 5 min warm up walk easy peasey. Started the first 5 min run. 1 min in the croc snuck out of the bushes and bit me in my left calf. Ouch doesn't quite cover it.
Decided that a tactical retreat was in order to allow for removal of crocodile and avoid worsening the injury.
Managed to walk the 900m home without limping.
Maxed out on ibuprofen and slathered with arnica cream for good measure. Hubby has been dispatched for a pack of ice/frozen peas (recent freezer malfunction means that we have none)
Pain ws centered about 20cm up my leg from bottom of heel about 10 cm above narrowest part of my achilles tendon. Am currently seated and can circle my toes in all directions, lift foot and point it without causing major pain. Just a bit tender, afaint echo of a rather nasty spike of pain when the "croc" bit. Lower calf feels a bit bruised, was rock hard 10 min ago but has loosened up almost to normal.
Any ideas what I've done to myself/narrowly avoided doing to myself?
What should I do to look after it so I,m not bait for other lurking crocs?
