After my hill efforts on Monday I finished with 20 mins of steady running, after 10 my left calf tightened up and then started to lock, dam what a bummer, seems like my old sciatic problem has returned to haunt me again!
I rested Tue and by Wed I was pain free! I set off steady but after a mile the calf suddenly locked without warning, leaving me to hobble home.
I guess that's the end of the road for me! I've booked an appointment with my local chiropractor for Friday, usually one treatment is enough to sort me out!
I know its the sciatic nerve thats the problem, as there is no pain if I do deep pressure massage on the calf and also the pain was moving around my foot and shin before the calf locked!
