8 easy miles

Totally bummed after the run.  During the 7th mile I strained my calf again somehow a lot like I did in Boston, but not nearly as bad.  Hopefully it will heal up real quick and I'll be back to running again in a couple days.  I can't figure out why it happened again.  I thought I was doing well and not pushing things too much.  Oh well, I'll just try and be smart so I can get back to full training as soon as possible.

What a beautiful morning... 56 degrees, sunny clear skys, no wind... And I couldn't run because of my stupid calf.  Well I may have been able to run, but I figured I should give it another days rest, so I headed to the gym for an inside workout.

30 minutes stationary bike

30 minutes elliptical

stretching

My calf does feel better this morning than I expected.  Hopefully I'll be able to run on it without pain tomorrow.

Gave running a go.  Felt good for the first 2 miles to the track.  Right when I got to the track my calf tightened up.  I stretched it and walked a bit then was able to do 4 x 100m strides without problem.  I stretched a bit more then tried my first 800m repeat.  By 200m I knew it wasn't going to happen so I took very slow jog home.

Total run 4.5 miles

I tried to jump rope for about 5 minutes, but that didn't feel quite right, so I broke out my hula-hoop and did that for 30 minutes.  It was kind of fun.

PM

30 minutes deep water running

I'm going to take the rest of the week off from running in hope that my calf will be good to go on Monday.
