Since I missed you last week, here's how last week played out...
My left calf started burning and felt tight after I got going. I kept trying to adjust the pace thinking it would loosen up, but finally I just had to stop.

|and some of this too|
walking a quarter of mile and stretching seemed to help so off I went again.
6 miles in 100:41
My calf felt better till close to the end. I went home and stretched a bunch more and drank 60 oz. of water. I was so thirsty, I think my weekend debauchery caught up to me.

~ I got a good upper body session in and ran 30 minutes on the treadmill - intervals 5 min. @ 8:49 X 4
My digestive issues (diverticulitis) were giving me chills, but it was a short run.
~ 4.5 miles in 46:03 my calf was feeling pretty good until the last half mile or so. It just feels like it needs a little TLC when it comes to stretching, but I am still battling the same chills and nausea problem. I couldn't have run another step, my gut was protesting for sure.

~ Just had to rest and take Zinc so I could kick the cold to the curb. Does laundry count as cross training?
Last week did not turn out like I hoped for sure. I wanted a kick butt week. The good news is my digestive issues are in taper also (thankfully) and I should have all my yuck out of the way and be ready to roll Saturday :)

Anyone else feel great disdain for their colon at times?
