Rehabbing – The Non-Runners Guide to Running the New York Marathon

The new year has started off well in many ways but it has started not in the greatest sense in terms of my calf injury. Rehab has been going well but the patience and tolerance that I usually have has been tested.

Rehabbing has involved longer walks and stints on my bike to try and maintain momentum and some level of cardio fitness, which is enjoyable and habit forming, but the frustration at not being able to run is absolute.

Spending a week in Yamba on a beach side holiday has been very therapeutic and the maintainance of the daily habits was there. Last Tuesday I attempted my first run and managed to do what I set out to do, run 2.5 kilometres straight. I felt very good and two days later attempted it again, only to feel the twinge of the calf again after just 800m.

Speaking with some specialists, they have advised me to take the time to rehab as any further damage may put me further behind. My first goal of 5km straight by the end of January is still something I want to achieve, so being careful now is more important.

Next week, I will share the runs that we have already booked in for and set aside our schedule for successfully running the New York City Marathon.
