Training is at a standstill

Training came to an abrupt halt on Tuesday night. Playing ball, trying to run from the batters box to first, I managed to pull both quad muscles and am out of commission for at least two weeks, which means no run for me this weekend. Good thing I didn’t spend all that money to go to the Maritimes to run the half, it would have been out of the cards as well. Think positive right. I went to physio yesterday because I knew it was more than just a mild pull of the muscles. This was instant, could not move, excruitating pain. By the time I got home from ball I was crying because it hurt to lift my foot off the ground. I can usually keep going through the pain, especially when playing a team sport, but it was a no go on Monday. I had to get a runner and sit out for the whole game.
So physio told me that there would be no running for a least a week and no ball for at least two. I have my legs taped with some pretty fancy K-Tape and have some excercises that I need to do. They are starting to feel better but I am very hesitant to try and exert them too much. I will probably have to wrap the legs when playing ball for a little while too. However another plus of going to physio, they are going to help me with my tight hips from running so I will benefit from more than addressing just the quads. Will probably have them look at my shoulder too.
REST, ICE, COMPRESSION & ELEVATION is the name of the game for this week.
