Sunday Tony and I met for what was to be a 12 mile run. We started out at a nice pace real easy for Tony and easy for me. The coarse we ran though was less than easy. Hilly, very hilly, some off road and some on a giant loop that we thought would acheive the 12 mile goal. At about 5 miles my left calf began to hurt. This is the same pain I have had for the last couple of weeks. It hurts but not so bad that I can't continue. And after a while it quits hurting altogether. The difference this time was that when I woke up on Monday, it was very sore. To the point that I was favoring it a little. The sad thing is that our run ended up being short of our goal in fact was only 10 miles, and we had to run around the outside of the prking lot to squeeze out the last 1/4 mile. Now here it is Wednesday I'm supposed to run a little today maybe 3 miles, the calf is a little sore but not as painful Monday. Maybe an easy run followed by some stretching will help. we'll see. I also have physical therapy today. I'm about tired of giving them money. I just hope my flexibility comes back pretty soon. I can't scratch my left shoulder with my right hand, which totally blows. The really weird thing is I'm constantly having to try something with my left arm to make sure it's something I should be able to do. Frustrating!!!
