Four days of no running and counting …

I haven’t run a step in four days.  Damn, that sucks.

I used my gift certificae this morning and got a sports message – focus was just on my legs, especially the injured calf.  I feel better but it is still sore and tight.   Getting better but not nearly healed yet.

I ran across this thread at about calf tightness (it’s the post about halfway down from “calved up once” where he posts an article from Running Times).  This post nailed what I have right on the head.  From the looks of it, this might be a slightly longer recovery than I anticipated.  I guess its a good thing this happened now and not three weeks before Boston.  I may still have time to set it right and get back into some decent training.  We’ll see.  I just have to remember its not about this year but the next ten.  With that in mind, it is time to get this injury fixed.  I hope to find this thing called “The Stick” that is a self-massage tool for the calves.

I plan on taking Wedensday, Thursday and Friday off and see if I can do this “medicinal run” talked about in that post on Saturday.  If so, then I will ease back into over the next week and hopefully be back to running solid miles again by March 10.   That will leave me with 5 weeks to Boston.   Not lots of time, but enough, I hope.
