I went out and tried out my calf and I got about  a half a mile into it and the darn thing just seized up on me again, so I limped home. I went and jumped on the elliptical and was able to get in just over 16 minutes before it started to bother me painfully again, after that I stretched and then I finished up with some upper body weight training and some push-ups... I did roll it for a little bit on the big foam roller and it was pretty painful so at this point I really don't know what to think, just pretty darn frustrated and sick of being injured I have been fighting this off and on for the last few years and the injuries are never the same just enough to keep me out of things! I guess at this point I'll just have to take each day at a time and just do whatever my body will let me do until I'm fully healed up, whenever that is!

See ya tomorrow.

AM- I went to the PT today to have him work on my calf and my back, the usual stuff, E-Stym along with some ultra sound and then some stretching and icing. I might try the elliptical later today after work but that all depends on the calf and how it is doing.

Later.

PM- After dinner I was frustrated so I went and jumped on the elliptical just to give my calf a try and it seemed to do pretty good. I did a 10 minute warm up and then I ran the back woods course, which I haven't done before, and it was a pretty good work out, 30 minutes and then after that I cooled down for another 10 minutes for a total of 50 minutes.  I finished up with my upper body weight training and then some push-ups, the calf seemed alright but I'll have to see how its doing in the morning, still no running as my PT wants me to just do the elliptical for now and thats as long as it doesn't hurt. I was glad to at least get something in, it made me feel pretty good.

Later.
