Workout Notes 2008 Week 15
I had not run intervals in two weeks, so I was excited to hit my 12x70 hard on Monday. On number 11 I felt a sharp pain in my right calf. I thought I might be cramping, because it was almost 80 degrees. I hit the last one hard, then I limped back to the gym. (I was certainly dehydrated as after the run I weighed in at 160, a measure that I have not seen in six months or more.) Tuesday morning I was limping around and Fran asked me if I had screwed up my knee again! The calf was much better after my Tuesday swim, and it was pretty good for my easy distance on Wednesday. But I could still feel that knot. So it was with some trepidation that I hit my 14x:45 session on Thursday. I was good through ten reps and that's when I felt that exact same pain as Monday. I decided to finish the workout only going 80% of effort for the last four reps. I did not limp home as badly on Thursday compared to Monday. Friday the pool was closed. I had a hard time deciding between doing a long run, doing an hour on the lifecycle, or going to the other pool later in the day. I chose bike and the calf was fine. I managed to sneak out on the real bike very early Saturday morning. I rode 10-12 miles with Terry then I had to get back home for the girls soccer game (Logan scored two goals and also one on Sunday - that cost me $40!). And today it was just too damn windy for the bike, so I went to the pool to make up for Friday.

Sadly I can still feel that huge knot in my leg....Not sure what I am gonna do tomorrow.
