Impressive calves.....shame about your feet!

posted on Thursday, 22nd October 2009 | find under Fitness, Nutrition

Less than 10 days to go and the RICEing (rest, ice, compression and elevation) is in full swing. My physio suggested a final long run on Saturday (which I aborted in pain after 14 miles) and then to stop running completely and rest to get my feet in order! Infact the physio said on my last visit that he hadn't witnessed anything quite like my feet in over 20 years (oh dear). However I am an eternal optimist so when he countered that with "but you have impressive calves" that was good enough for me! In 43 years I have not had such a "professional" compliment and I am ever more determined now to run in my shorts!!! I may need to dose up on something a bit stronger than Nurofen (didn't even touch the pain on Saturday) but at least the calves will be doing their thing!!! It's so close now that I am not sure whether to be excited or petrified...a little of both is fine I think for now. I am carb loading like crazy (no booze for a month now) and looking forward to the finish line and a glass of bubbly.......
