My calf is feeling a bit better this week, I’ve actually managed to run 5 miles today so I’m a bit happier. What I don’t want to do is chance my luck and end up getting injured again. So I’ve decided to take it easy and build the milage up slowly.
I’ve even bought myself a new pair of running shoes, just in case my current pair contributed to my injury. Hopefully they’ll last a bit longer than the last pair. Wasn’t impressed with them at all. My new runners are a pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 9.
So far this week I’ve managed 8 miles, I might manage 25 or 30 at a push but I don’t think I’m going to be able to do my long 20 mile run on Saturday. So no 45 miles this week 🙁 training for Berlin is right out of the window just now, there’s no point in chasing the milage, I don’t want to tearing my calf muscle again and not being able to train at all.
Looks like I’m going to have to be patient and maybe do some crosstraining to compensate.
