The damn tight calves. It is super painful, and it really prevents speed and duration. I have done NUMEROUS things on my own to try to fix this:
- Stretch - before and after
- Epsom salt baths
- Foam roll (also stick & lacrosse ball)
- Compression socks/sleeves pretty much 24/7
2. I am running a 50k on Saturday. OF COURSE I AM. Doesn't that make sense after the last few months I've been having? Only my 3rd 50k and only a few weeks after my last one. I'm sure it will be fiiiiiiiiiiiiiine......
3. Today is L's birthday! We are going to lunch, having dinner/cake with the family and THEN we are going to the Madonna concert!! Happy XXth Birthday, L!!
