The calf strain that has prevented me running over the past two weeks has also coincided this last week with a heavy cold. The good thing here is at least I caught the cold during my enforced abstinence from running and not afterwards.
Anyhow this morning dawned bright, sunny and frosty and I decided that as the calf was feeling much improved it was time for a gentle jog.
The result - I coughed, sniffed, wheezed and shuffled my way around 2 miles but the good news is that there was no adverse reaction from the troublesom left calf. So it's onwards and hopefully upwards from here.
