Hi Dr. RobinsonI’m 44 years old, 5’7″, 150 lbs, male, I’ve been running since 1973 with no major injuries. Run 30-50 miles a week. Last race was in June, 1/2 marathon, Palos Verdes, Ca.Two weeks ago, (my calf had been tight all week) I was warming up for a track workout and during isometrics, felt a pop in my lower left leg.
I immediately walked off the track and the ‘spot’ right at the base of the left calf as burning and extremely sensitive.
I was not able to put full weight on the leg/foot.
It has been two weeks and everything ‘seems’ okay.
I can move my toes up and down and in a circle.
So, from all accounts things seem back to normal.
What kind of injury do you think this was? Do you have any suggestions or recommendations as far as resuming training? Thanks in advance,Tres Smith
