Day 70C--Calves

I've mentioned my tight calves before and I had gotten used to them. They've been tight since I started training at the beginning of May. Yesterday, my calves took a turn for the worse. Instead of just being tight and uncomfortable when I walked or ran, they are now sore all the time. I'm visibly limping all the time. My right knee & hip are starting to hurt because of the limping caused by my tight left calf. I have called the physical therapists that work with T2 and hope they can help me out. I don't want to miss tomorrow's 7 mile run, but I don't want to make things worse and miss the 16 mile run next week.


  1. I highly recommend seeing massage therapist, Janna Lombardo, for what ails you. She's a miracle worker. Good luck!

  2. That's a great idea, and I may do that closer to the actual marathon. Last night, I spent about an hour with an ice pack, foam roller, rubbing my calf, resting and then repeating. Did some of the same today and was able to finish.

  3. Just talked to her today and she said she will be running a special soon so keep an eye out for it or just ask her about it. Glad you had a good run
