Ever since Tuesday, I’ve been limping around, barely able to walk. Wednesday was a rest day, and another visit to see Dr. Eva. As I hoped, she had expected me to be *very* sore after the deep muscle work she did on my left calf on Tuesday. By Thursday, I felt slightly better but was still hobbling around, as I continued to do on Friday. Since I couldn’t run, I swam and went to Spin on those days instead. When I saw Dr. Eva on Friday afternoon, she seemed puzzled, and troubled that I was still in so much pain. She pointed out that while its probably related to the issues we had been working on over the past few weeks, this pain was in a different location.
My training scheduled called for a 6-miler on the last Saturday before my marathon, so I thought, why not run a 10K race? It would be good practice to go through the process of preparing for a race. Coincidentally, there was a Mermaid race on the exact day.
