Legs felt pretty good today. Pain and stiffness were nearly gone completely. Ran in the morning so it wasn't as hot as yesterday's run. Was chugging along pretty well. Still concentrating on a forefoot strike. All of a sudden, PAIN! A twinge of pain deep in the middle of my calf muscle stopped me in my tracks at 1.23 miles. I knew better than to try to continue. It feels like a strain and not a tear. Only a week until my next triathlon so I'm not too happy about this. Bike is still out of commission as well. I am entering my taper week, but with it only being a sprint tri, I would have liked to have worked out normally through at least Wednesday before I started the taper to my race on Sunday. My experience with these sorts of pains from when I was younger tells me that this will keep me out of commission for at least a few days. Might be longer now that I'm older. Will take some time off and see how this progresses.
