Yes!!! Reading this made me feel much better
I’m off to the UK tonight! But first a recap of traning/fitblr stuff :)
Yesterday I went to the gym (for the first time in FOREVER) and did a workout indoors. It’s hotter than hell here an I wasn’t about to try to workout outside.
I am so excited to be heading to London. It’s going to be tricky trying to fit in my training around all this travel, but it’s going to be amazing to see my friends and family out there.
I’ll update from the motherland!
So I’ve been training pretty hard in the heat for the last several days and I was definitely feeling it this morning. I had planned on trying to get my long run in before I left for London and woke up super early with the intention of getting 10 miles done. However, I woke up tender and tired and decided to be reasonable and just do one of my shorter runs.
My body had other ideas.
My calves were killing me from the beginning of the run. Now they’ve been sort of tender for a while, but I haven’t thought much of it. I sort of figured they would loosen up as I ran. Man was I wrong. I even stopped to stretch them after about a mile and a half…still no good. It was harder than ever to get going again. I was literally hobbling :( I ended up calling my dad to come pick me up and give me a ride home. Blah. So much for going hard before my trip.
I’m going to try to rest/ice them today and see how they feel tomorrow. I’m really bummed about how tender I feel! Anyone else get frustrated when it feels like your body just won’t cooperate?
