My right calf muscle is still extremely sore after the 10 mile run on Saturday. I thought it would be better by now, but it's not. I almost have to limp it's so bad. Tonight I'm going to try some moist heat on it to see if it helps.

I was supposed to go running with another girl last night, but her daughter got sick so she couldn't make it. Normally that would be signal to me to flake out and not run, but I made myself go. Since I was running on a trail outside, I got changed at work before I left. I tend to get hot when I run, so I was wearing a running skirt. I think it was in the low 40s temperature wise. I work at a corporate headquarters for a bank downtown and am on the 11th floor. So after I changed I had to ride the elevator down filled with people who were dressed in formal business suits. I got some weird looks, especially when we walked outside and I was basically wearing shorts.

I got to the trail and started running. Since my calf was hurting so much and I forgot my inhaler, I only ran two miles. But two is better than nothing I guess.

I went to a spin class this morning and my calf was still bothering me during the first part, but once it warmed up it was ok. I'm glad that's out of the way and I don't have to worry about any kind of exercise until tomorrow night.
