As for group fitness instructor I went straight back to work the day after my first marathon and now 2 weeks later during my class yesterday I jumped and my calf muscle ( gastrocnemius to be specific) has a tear. The ladies at the front heard it! I continued teaching with the adrenaline pumping but now I'm struggling. Got gp to confirm the torn muscle and resting it. I have done this before just over a year ago to the other leg but this was a worse tear than now. Obviously my priority is my job and getting proper recovery but im sad that i will lose my running fitness. Has anyone else experienced this injury and got any advise?
