I have been training for a century, and only 8 days away from the date, I tore a muscle in my calf (playing softball, of all things). Felt like someone hit the back of my calf with a bat. I could barely stumble home. Of course, I am doing RICE, Ibuprofen, etc.
So I assume my century hope is shot.
Has anyone here had experience with this sort of injury? How long before I should try riding? How long did it take to recover?
