I know some might think this is just is deliberate ruse to avoid dragging my middle-aged spread around the 5 mile fun run course in a couple of weeks, but my leg is not well.
After my last run on Thursday morning, I came back with a calf strain and it hasn't gone away yet which is a worry. Also I noticed that my left shin had swollen up last night and again this morning.
I'm trying to rest it as much as possible, but life doesn't allow a comfy chair and a footstool I'm afraid.
Made the mistake of looking on Google earlier so I am now nursing thoughts of foot operations, fluid retention and/or amputation.
Off to the docs shortly. Probably 2 aspirins and a note for teacher.
