Calves?

This past Friday night I put in a brutal work out because I had missed out almost all last week on cardio. I only managed to run the previous Saturday morning and Wednesday morning due to Habitat for Humanity. Unfortunately I gave my legs too little of a break from all the heavy lifting and during my run early Saturday morning my calves were on FIRE. I felt like they were going to give out on me. After stretching them out around 2 miles, I only manage to make it to 2.75 miles consistently running. I had to alternate walking and running the whole way back to prevent serious pain. I took Sunday off and while I considered running this morning the rain convinced me to stick with one more day of cross-training. I’m really hoping it was just a little over exertion and it’s nothing serious!! 

Back on WW for a little recovery and help with maitenence. I’m super unhappy with what I’ve left go despite my running times getting ever faster. Guess you have to take the good with the bad. Going to get back to what I had before – but the proper way this time, not from stress starvation. 

Tomorrow I am going to go for a little sample run in my new home town of Waco, Texas!!! I’m excited. Bring on the HEAT!!
