It’s the week if the Shamrock Run and I haven’t had a lot of time for training since I pulled my calf muscle. I as able to fit in a nice 4 mile run today but at the end my left leg was starting to get grumpy. I’m thinking about another 4 miles on Wednesday to see how I feel. Then the Shamrock Run 15k this weekend.
I know mentally I can do the 15k, but I’m not too sure about my body. I’m not going to kill myself to finish as I have much larger races that I need to be fit for *cough* Spartan Beast *cough*
It’s been a few weeks since I was able to go out for a run. During the snowpocalypse, I failed to warm up my legs enough and 3 miles into my 5 mile run I pulled my left calf muscle. Since then, I have continued with P90X3, modifying where needed. Through P90X3, I was able to keep my cardio up, which is nice.
Today I went for a 3 mile test run as I have the Shamrock Run 15k in two weeks. I’m glad to say that I did not have any issues withy calf after properly warming up. Throw in a few dynamic stretches after the run and keep on adding distance for the 15k.
On my non running days, I will review the apps that I use while I run.
