Happy Easter! Any time you have a post with Damn in the title you know it’s not going to be great. I was starting off pretty good with the running. I was running on the treadmill a couple of times a week with the long run building up on the weekend. At the moment I’m going between running and cycling. Everything was moving along swimmingly. I was able to get up to 5 miles for my long run.
This week I was going for a shorter run and then my right calf muscle pulled…again. This is an old injury. This started about three years ago. It comes and goes. Most likely due to over use. I have been really hitting the training hard and I’m doing a lot of different things. Weights, cycling, yoga and of course running. No doubt it’s overuse. Right now I take 1 to 2 rest days. I really hate losing momentum but it looks like I might be out for two weeks of running. My ankle is now swollen because of the calf injury. Foam rolling, ice and Aleve™.
I’ll give myself a week of no leg action, but still continue with my strength training. Then next week will most likely be a walk week. Minor set back, but something that needs to be addressed now. Pay now or pay later and I really want to be strong for this run.
Finished with only 15.17 miles this time. Disappointed but not a show stopper. I have 6890.17 miles to go. Resolute ~ Happy Miles to You!!
