It’s in just over a week’s time that the trail marathon is set to start. My calf muscle is in quite serious pain. I can’t run at the moment, and yet I walked up a Munro yesterday.
So, am I over-egging the injury so I don’t have to fail a marathon? Or is it a stress injury that only really hurts when running? Who knows.
What I do know is I’m going to be in Coniston next weekend anyway, and if all else fails, then fuck it, I’ll walk 26 miles.
To make sure I do, and to justify wearing my favourite green vest, I’ve signed up for just giving, and am inviting all my pals to throw a tenner at me in aid of Macmillan. That way there’s no backing out.
