Hunk of Hunk of burning legs.
Today I resumed my normal training. I am really regretting my choice to do the pool workout. My calves are KILLING me. They feel like the last training cycle, when I did a lot of pool work. Just burning and burning. I had trouble sleeping last night because they hurt terribly. So I took motrin and did some extra hydration in case hydration was the issue. This morning they still feel really awful.
I did a spin for 1 hour and 20 minutes. During this time I was planted in front of Fox News. SO Inflammatory and it seems some of the “facts” they were presenting were incorrect, but oh well.
After this I laced up and went for a run. Actually truth is I went to lace up, discovered I had brought 2 left shoes to the gym…
Happily the problem was easily solved as I found 2 right shoes in the car. I then ran 6 miles. It was SO hot and I felt quite drained, plus you know, my calves felt like burning hunks of meat. It was a fairly slow sixer, but given the HEAT and my recent strain…I just took it.
I believe I shall now take an ice bath and lets all hope that fixes the calf issue. I have a race in 8 days!!!! I do not want to run it on burning calves.
