Injury: calf strain

My left calf is still pretty sore. I think I must’ve injured it slipping on ice prior to getting on the trails on Sunday. I iced it most of Sunday and Monday. I took an epsom salt bath Monday night. The only exercise on Monday was a mile hike in the morning and a few dog walks during the day.

Today, Tuesday, the calf feels better and I am going to foam roll and then go to the Y for some elliptical and stair climbing. I can’t take the day completely off because I know me and two days off will be detrimental to training and the momentum I’ve been building.

The hope is by taking a few days off from running it will heal and I can run by Thursday.

Some exercises today:

  • Stairs
  • Rowing machine
  • Treadmill – hills
  • Upper body weights
  • Elliptical
