Comments: Ran the first 4 miles without stopping. 41:57 (10:30 min/mile). I felt a little tired, but still pretty good.
At about mile 3.25 I cross a road and have to slow down to check for traffic. After crossing I started back into my trott and noticed a little tightening in my left calve. I have had that before so I thought nothing of it.
At mile 4.6 I was reminded of the pain, but in a sharp way! It hurt! I could only walk. So I did that for a while and tried running. The calve was tight, but once I got going it didn’t hurt too bad. I could however, feel in my legs that I was running differently and parts further up got tight.
I managed to get home in a decent time. Next time I’ll make sure I have my cell phone with me so I can just call home to be picked up. Sitting here now, after icing the calve it is pretty darn tight and hurts. I hope that I’ll be able to do the Baltimore (Ohio) 5k on Saturday.
