My running and training has been going so well. I’ve been feeling strong, getting faster, and running is making me happy.
But I’ve had a little set back. Part way through my long training run this weekend my calf muscle began to hurt and by the end of the run I couldn’t even walk without wincing in pain. It felt defeating. And I was angry.
A few days have passed and my calf is still very sore, but not as sore. I’m taking some time to rest it so that I don’t have a permanent set back. As bummed as I am about this turn of events, I’m trying very hard to be patient. I’m trying to be good and give myself a break.
I know this is temporary, but I have to admit it’s challenging. I’ve been working so hard to get back to a happy place with running, and it feels like now that I’ve found it, I have to take a break. Here’s to hoping for healthy, happy legs by the end of the week!
