A Sore Leg



Yep, as the title suggests, I have a sore leg. A sore upper left leg. It is not a running injury but an injury from gardening. At least I think it's from gardening.

It is a weird one in the sense that it does not stay in one place. It literally moves around! It will be on the inside and then at some point suddenly on the outside. Then right at the top and then suddenly just above the knee...

It is definitely not specific to a particular muscle. I am actually worried that it might be the femur bone itself. I've asked all the powers that be and the first step is rest for a week to see if there is any improvement. I am in the middle of that week now and I am getting worried. I can still feel it as I did on day one.


All in all very annoying indeed! But I will persevere and get it sorted out. That's all I can do. Hopefully rest can do what is needed.

In the mean time,..run strong my friends!

Happy healing! I know you have never had a running injury, so this must be frustrating!

Liz said...

I hope it starts to improve soon. I know how hard it is to not run - good luck.

Very frustrating I'm sure, especially not knowing what it is. The one week rest is a good idea. Hope it helps and it's nothing serious.

Get better soon - hope it's not bone related.

Oh how annoying to not know what the issue is. Waiting seems so much easier when your path is clear. Hoping for fast healing for you!

I knew there was a reason why I shouldn't ever work in the garden. I hope you're starting to feel some improvement soon.

How does a 3km TT sound?

PS I've also picked up an injury from Gardening in the past...

I saw your message on my FB post and had to come rushing over to check out what's going on. What a bummer. Seriously, these nagging injuries that keep popping up for you need to end NOW! I am so sorry, Johann, and hope that by the end of the week the leg is feeling better and you are able to get back to running and other activities. Sending you speedy healing vides!!

And thanks for the comment on the blog. Maybe I'll start writing more regularly. But I doubt it. Haha. Email me if you have time and we can keep in touch better.

Huh, that's weird! I hope it's feeling better now, have you tried icing it?

Last Autumn I too had an injury while I was working in my mother's garden.
Hope you'll be better soon!

I hope this heals quickly! I am having problems with my knee but can run. I am going to PT but might try something else my doctor recommended too.
