R & R

I think it’s some time for some R&R. While running on Monday, I had a little “tweak” in my left calf. I didn’t really pay attention, but then yesterday and today I was feeling it again and it didn’t “run out”. I felt this same thing when I first started running and it became a really big deal and I had to take of a couple of weeks to let it rest and heal, so I’m going to be proactive! I was looking back through my journal and noticed that the last time I took any amount of time off of running was back a week 9. Seeing as how this is week 19, I think it’s time to take a couple of days off. I don’t want to aggravate my calf anymore than necessary, and I don’t want it to become something that I have to take extended time off for. I’m still going to lift weights, but am probably going to totally rest my legs (we’ll see) at least until Tuesday of next week. I’m hoping that by taking action now, it will prevent me from really hurting later. Don’t worry, I shall return, I’ve come too far to stop now!! On another note, I set a new PR today for 5k mileage- 33:29! WooHoo!
