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. ....
