Any quick fixes

Hi All,

Swimmming along as happy as happy can be, went in to a tumble turn...

... as soon as I kicked off BANG by calf cramped up [:@] Got out and gave it a bit of a massage.

Today, still no good. Im going to rest today, maybe have a spin for an hour later.

Problem is I have a cross country tomorrow morning. If I run I assume i will do damage? Any ideas, previous experiences would be good, really want to race tomorrow.

    My calf went 3 days before my first Olympic. But did and finished it without problem.

    What did i do?

    Tubi grip or compression socks - wore them all day.


    A bit of self massage and sitting in the bath.

    Ibuprofen gel a couple of times a day.

    Gentle calf stretches.

    Understand completely you want to race.

    I'd suggest you do a little run on race morning. If the calf protests, don't race: you dont want to lose 3 months by this.

    Best of luck.

    Morning Fellas,

    I didnt race this morning. Id rather miss today and run the rest of the series than miss the rest of it because of today [:)]

    Thanks for the advice chaps.
