I've been laid off since the second week of December with compartment syndrome in both lower legs. The physio advised me to rest, which I have done, but have been allowed to walk the dog (5 miles) and swim (badly) as long as it didn't give me pain(which it didn't). I saw her again today and the good news is that the muscles are much more soft and flexible and she says I can do a trial run of 2 miles to test them out. If it's OK she will give me a programme to gradually build up again, but what if it does hurt? I've had injuries and lay off's before but have never felt so anxious about running two miles!
Any advice or inspiration?
