Day 89 - That blasted persistent calf muscle!

I gave my calf muscle a couple of days off to rest and relax -

Finally, it felt better (and, let's face it, I was impatient) so I got back into the workout groove yesterday.

Sigh. Mistake. I spent the rest of the day limping with the super tight muscle. Sure, I should have probably not leapt back into the fray so quickly, but I think the main problem is stress and tension. See, my shoulders, back, and neck have been tight as well - and I've noticed that they are more tense in the morning than at any other time. I've also been sleeping less well and waking earlier and anxious.

So I think my mental tension is just migrating down the back of my body.


But I also think my main source of tension will be over this weekend, so I'm hoping to get back to my own stride next week. ....

Fingers crossed!


  1. Absolutely correct about the tension moving down from the upper areas all the way to the calf. Ever heard of anatomy trains? Check it yo!

  2. Heather, I just made that eggplant caviar recipe you posted the other day. Holy sh*t, it's delicious!

    It's always nice to know the stress is going to have an end point. I hope you're feeling better soon!

  3. Feel better, Heather! I hope you find time to relax this weekend!
