March 08, 2005
With all the good intentions in the world last week I started the fitness burst to get in shape. And now it's all gone to pot as I've damaged myself.
Playing hockey on Saturday I was running full pelt with the ball and felt a sudden pang in my right calf and couldn't straighten my leg to put it on the floor. (hence me falling over like I'd been shot!). Having seen the physio now it appears I have torn some of the muscle in the calf and have been banned from hockey and other physical activity for at least the next week probably the next two. poooo. It still hurts when I walk as I can't extend my leg properly so I now have a fetching limp. I have to miss the Varsity game Wednesday (was meant to be playig for Coventry as I' m a part time student there) and am missing Saturday's league game for Hampton. I'm dithering about whether I could disobey orders and play Sunday as we have a crunch rearranged league fixture against our arch rivals Belper who I'm not too fond of. Shall just have to see how it goes.
So for now I'll be participating in a bit of chair dancing (sitting down and shrugging my shoulders in time to the music) and will try my best to diet better so that the lack of activity doesn't show too much. wish me luck…..
