Right at the end of my run yesterday, my right calf tightend up and then was sore all day yesterday. I could still fill a little tightness in it this mornig walking, so I decided to take the bike out for a ride.

20 miles at a fairly hard effort.

I will probably ride again tomorrow just to be safe that it is healed all the way.  Since I'm tapering, the lack of running but still getting in some good cardio may actually be beneficial.

20 more miles on the bike.

Calf still mildly sore this morning. That means tomorrow will not be a run day either.

Rest day with some core work and some calf therapy.

Calf felt great this morning. I warmed up with some active stretching, did the foam roller on the calf, then a little more active stretching.  I then hoped on the TM at 10 minute pace and tried to run.  Unfrotunately it didn't feel quite as great running, not terrible but bad enough I didn't want to risk running on it this close to race day, so I jumped on the elliptical and took my disappointment out on it with a good hard 90 minutes of elliptical work.  I think my calf feels even better after doing that.  I'll cross train again tomorrow and see how the calf is doing Monday.

I'm in Phoenix for the weekend at my cousin's wedding. They got married in the new Phoenix temple. It is beautiful. I had time to get in 30 all out effort minutes on the elliptical before the day's activities began. 

My first week of taper has definitely not gone as planned, but I'm not so sure if I might be better off having done a lot of really hard cross training than I would have been with the usual shorter easier running that I usually do during taper.
