Down for the count

It's offical I'm out injured, according to my Physio I have anterior compartment syndrome.

So no race this weekend! but I knew this when I woke up this morning and my leg was still sore. It seems that the gods don't want me to complete "Defence Lake Attack". Last year out with Gastro, this year ACS

What is Anterior compartment syndrome?

Anterior compartment syndromes arise when a muscle becomes too big for the sheath that surrounds it causing pain. The big muscle on the outside of the shin is called the tibialis anterior and is surrounded by a sheath. This is called the anterior compartment of the lower leg. Compartment syndromes can be acute or chronic.

Taken from

I can swim, ride a stationary  bike (no road or MTB) lots stretching and my foam roller and time with Physio. I must say I'm not happy, but it's not a serious injury. Oh well.

So my Physio, PT and I will work out a come back plan.

Next event ? I would like to say Race 1 of Spring into Shape in Sep. but time will tell.
