Tuesday I bought 2XU calf sleeves, which provide more support than my Zensah sleeves. Granted, it takes some elbow grease to get the sleeves over my calves, but they feel more supported, even if they do feel like a sausage casing. I did 3.25 miles Wednesday with 1/1 intervals and felt good. I'm not past the front calf problem yet, but I found the magic button. It hurts for sure, but the lacrosse ball is getting down into the knot. I also see my chiro this week so I hope to at least get a plan of attack. I'm still experimenting with intervals and speed, shoes, sleeves, trying to find a winning combo.
I think we're now moving into weather that brings out the New Englander in me. Sunday was in the 40s when I woke up, but the temp was deceiving. When I got outside for my run, the wind hit 1/2-a mile into my run. My poor ears. They were frozen by the time I was done, and I need to get to REI to ge t a headband. Not only will that limit the wind hitting my ears, I'm hoping it'll cut down on the sound of the wind that can over power the volume of my music. And maybe some gloves too. My hands were chapped because of the wind.
And finally, look at what's back in North Texas. Ta-da!
