One of these days I would like to blog a workout where I say, “Everything was great today! I felt good and had a nice workout.” Today isn’t going to be one of those.
So while I was on vacation I strained my calf, probably when diving. It was feeling better after almost 2 weeks, and today I started up my usual HIIT routine with some butt kicks. 15 seconds in, I feel a pop in my calf and it’s back to acute pain. I tried to get through a few more intervals but after some step-ups I felt a second pop and decided to just stop and get the ice pack. It feels like the attachment between my calf and Achilles is jacked up, whenever my calf gets pulled any longer than neutral it hurts.
So that’s about all I have to say for today. Maybe I’ll try some yoga later if the pain’s died down. Certainly no more running or jumping.
