INJURY!!!! Darn it!
Saturday, January 16, 2010
I started this morning out great with eating (fiber one waffles and a protein shake) and headed to the gym. Started out well on the elliptical and then the treadmill for a total of 25 min. I then began my kickboxing training and about 5 min in I went to do a round kick and heard a snap! Something went wrong in my calf muscle and it was on fire. I sat down and rubbed it but the pain didn't get any better. The only good thing is that I was strong enough not to cry in front of the whole gym. So I picked myself up and hobbled my butt to the car and drove home. I have been icing it and took some meds while I searched my symptoms online. It appears I have strained that big muscle (and mine is huge because my calves are huge) on the back of your lower leg. Treatment says I should use R.I.C.E. - Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. So now I'm sitting here with my leg up with ice strapped to it wondering how soon I will be able to get back to the gym. Just when I got two weeks of good eating and working out this hits me. I'm praying I can be mobile again early next week. This sucks.
