Take your injuries seriously

I have a torn calf muscle. To say this is an inconvenience is something of an understatement – especially as the tear came just a few days after I had managed to run 10k for the first time in months and – more than that – did it in a time that suggested I could look forward to a decent season of long distance running.

Unfortunately I didn’t take the injury seriously for about three days and so probably made things worse. That means I may have added weeks to my recovery time. I hope not, but in any case March seems to be a right-off.
