Call me grumpy.
After slowly building up the mileage I decided to try my luck at a race. Last Saturday. The Calf held up the way it should. So far, so good. During the race I felt some stiffish pain in my left foot, below the outer ankle. Figured it was just my body getting used to racing again.
Well, society should thank me for not pursueing a career in medicine. The pain was still there the next morning. Even more annoying: it's still there today. And I'm limping. It hurts when I walk around (not when I'm not walking), mainly when I'm 'pushing off' (know what I mean?). What the bleep? My MD told me to rest it and check back in 2 (2!!!!) weeks. He had no clue what could be causing the pain. Sucktastic...
I don't want to go all Negative Nancy/Debbie Downer on you, but this sucks. I've been nursing The Calf, slowly building up the mileage, and then this happens? What's up with that? I know there are worse things that could happen (I do!!!), but still...it sucks.
I think I deserve a cocktail and some greasy food right now! And some chocolate cheesecake. And another cocktail to go with that.
