Road running 10:00 [3] 1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Another go at running. Soreness did start to build up in calf but not as bad as last week's attempt. Soreness seems to have moved again: now right at back of calf immediately above the Achilles (last week it was inside edge of calf). I could have gone further though, so must see it as an improvement. Hopefully another session with Richard on Thursday will improve things further.
Tried some heel raises but calf wasn't having it. Worried I'll be sore in the morning.

Orienteering 1:12:19 [2] 4.5 mi (16:04 / mi)
(injured) shoes: Innov8 Mudclaw

C/S Cup, Guisecliff. Blue Men, 6.2km, 270m.
First 'race' as a M50. Walked the entire course, but still had a number of fun battles with other competitors who were racing. 25 mins down on Tim, but most importantly, calf was OK. Ready to start running again?
3 x 10 one-legged heel raises. Still weak.

Mountain Bike 1:00:00 [2] 12.0 mi (5:00 / mi)

Calf still feeling sore. I have a skin rash where the masseur has pulled my hair follicles and so I think most of the soreness is just at skin level.
Golf comp cancelled due to flooding. Late afternoon bike ride when the rain eventually stopped. Honley, Meltham (to check on wetness of the course) and back up the bridleway from there.

(injured) (rest day)

Calf still sore this morning. No exercise allowed but decided golf would be OK. Got round (in 92, all proper greens) before the rain arrived. Calf sore and occasional tweeks (from all over the calf, not just where the injury is).

Ouch! No pain no gain. I hope that applies with massage. Richard Hollingsworth had a go at my 'chronically' tight calf. Deep tissue massage many times more painful than anything I've had before. Very sore now and I'll be hobbling for a day or two, but hopefully after that...
8 PM

Walking 45:00 [1]

Walk whilst Lulu played netball. Not sure if this was a good idea or not. Calf sore and twinging occasionally. only walking at very easy pace.
