Setback

The past few days have been frustrating. I actually ran outside on Monday and Wednesday (first fifteen minutes, then twenty minutes) and felt pretty darn good about it. There was definitely some tightness toward the end of each run, but nothing I couldn't manage. Some quality time with a good book and a bag of ice seemed to settle things down, and then it was on to other things.

Then something happened on Thursday afternoon. My calf felt totally fine around lunchtime and then totally not fine by the time I got home from work. It's been nagging me ever since. I could even feel it on the bike today, which is definitely out-of-the-ordinary.

I'm getting pretty sick of this stupid injury. I'm also getting pretty sick of paying for specialized treatment that doesn't really seem to be working... Argh.
