Achy calf

I did not get up in time to run before work this morning. So the run had to wait until after dinner. I toyed with the idea of waiting until tomorrow but decided the habit of running on a schedule was important enough to go after we were done eating.

I may have been downplaying the real problem with my right calf. Tuesday night, quite late, I had terrible muscle cramps in the right calf, and the muscle has been sore ever since. I took it easy and did not have any more cramping today. However, I do have an extremely sore calf now. And I can see a thin red line that's about an inch long right where my leg is sorest. Not sure what that's all about. I will keep slowly stretching and take some ibuprofen to try to walk normally tomorrow. I just don't want to limp around work and end up throwing everything else out of whack too.

It was crazy warm this afternoon, and the run went really nicely, if a bit slowly. I was able to run for the full time of each of the running stretches, and the run 2 of week 3 podcast was marvelous. I am officially giving myself advance permission to move run 3 to the next day my calf is not sore. Or Monday at the latest.
