So, the verdict is in, and I will officially be participating in the G.O.A.T.Z. 50K on October 28. The race was in jeopardy as my injured calf was not healing, and a bump formed on the inside of my leg just under my calf. It wouldn’t go away, and was causing a lot of discomfort, even causing my leg to swell up from the calf down. It was actually quite disturbing. However, the bump, and the swelling have gone away, and the soreness I had been experiencing has started to subside. The cause of all of this, a grade 2 strain of the interior Soleus muscle. Basically, I had a tear in the muscle and just didn’t think too much of it other than bouts of discomfort. Everything looks to be on the mend now, and starting this weekend, I’ll be back at it getting ready for October 28. One thing I’ll really need to do is keep it compressed, so I’m hoping that my new @CSSBrand sleeves get here soon.
I’m happy it is not as severe as it could have been as that bump was getting a little intimidating on my leg, but, since it is finally going down, things are much better.
