I went to the Edgeworth Centre indoor track yesterday, and I ran my longest run for a good while, about 10 kilometres. It was my first indoor run this winter.
My injured calf muscle has been getting better this last week, but I could definitely tell on this run that it isn’t healed up quite yet. The lower calf area, where the muscle attaches to the achilles tendon is still tight, and some discomfort is noticeable. I’m sticking to my program of lots of stretching, icing, self-massage and easy running. I also get ultra-sound treatment once a week.
It sure is nice to have the opportunity to run indoors once in a while, especially considering what the weather has been like in Alberta lately. I’m tired of the minus 25 and colder. When is it going to get decent temperatures again?
