After a 2 year break I decided that I would like to play softball again. I have been playing it since primary school, and at club since I was 13 (apart from a few seasons). I was really looking forward to playing today, although a little nervous, and was relieved to get my first safe hit. Everything going well until I ran- something that I had been doing for the whole match- and ‘backed up’ first base and I felt my left calf muscle tear. It’s not the first time- I have torn both calf muscles previously- and this time it’s not as bad as before. Still, there goes being able to go to the gym for a couple of weeks, and I now have a slower start to the season (complete with some rehab).
I’m just frustrated. Maybe I’m getting old.
