My legs have been resting for a few weeks now. My sick week (Christmas) I barely ran expect for my long run. The tightness I kept experiencing in my left calf cleared up, and for once my muscles felt great. I've kept it light this past week too.
I realized the calf tightness was covering the real issue.
The real pain is actually under my calf muscle, go figure.
I've been rolling out my calf muscle for weeks thinking that was the issue...genius.
I can't really figure out if the pain is the bone, or just another sore muscle. It's a strange spot that hurts. It did improve after being off it so much, but depending how I put my weight down I can still feel a twinge of something in there. I started getting worried I had a stress fracture, so I called the Orthopedic doc a few days ago, but I can't get in till Jan. 12th.
Then miraculously, once I made the appointment, almost all traces of pain started to disappear. Maybe a week wasn't quite long enough to clear up whatever in going on in there.
I guess after my long run this week (14 miles) I will see how I feel and decide if I should keep the appointment.
Ever have tightness trick you before? If you started feeling completely fine, would you cancel the appt.?
