I knew I had to keep up strength training, which is easier since I can do it at home. Throw in Pure Barre, and I can get some good strength training done during the week. My calves were tight this past week (one was cramping during Pure Barre), and my run on Tuesday was rough with a weather system moving in. I skipped working out Wednesday because that system knocked me on my seat. Thursday I did parts of Iron Strength, and I spent that rest of the week stretching my calves and getting Icy Hot on them. I even went in for a much needed massage on Sunday. I hadn't been for over two years because of my ITBS.
I hope it helps with my tight calves. Right now there's a spot right below my knee and slightly to the right that is giving me grief. My chiro knew the spot and worked on it last week, and I think it's connected to the tight calves. It flared up during my run yesterday so I got 2.75 miles done instead of the 3 I was shooting for, and I had to walk the last .1 miles. I don't run until Wednesday so I'll work on that spot, between icing, stretching and rolling.
