Wow, that hike this weekend really did me in. Yesterday, my calves just felt really tight, but today, i woke up in pain. Must be that delayed on-set muscle soreness. Ouch!
As a runner, I’m used to my quads, shins and hamstrings being sore…. but sore calves are a whole new beast to me. I feel like I’m walking around with rocks stuck to my legs, is this normal? I iced for a bit this morning (while watching last night’s Secret Life!) and then foam rolled, but it was almost too painful to do! Isn’t foam rolling supposed to hurt, and then feel good? Well this just never felt good.
I plan to keep icing, stretching, moving and drinking lots of water today. I think a nice jog tonight would also be beneficial. Ragnar is 10 days away!
