I have to have the most injury prone body on the planet. I was definitely feeling the effects of my first T25 workout. All of the jumping, squatting, and lateral movements did a number on my calves and hip. For someone who can run long, run fairly fast for races, and lifts weights and core trains on a regular basis WHY does this happen? UGH.
Well, last night I did Speed 1.0. I wore my Pro Compression sleeves thinking that would be a benefit to my legs. I made it through my T25 workout no problem. Then I hit my tready for some easy miles. My warm up mile was complete and it hit the speed button to increase for a while, and with the first step my calf muscle pulled. I tried to just run it out for maybe a minute. No such luck. I hobbled off and immediately used The Stick and foam rolled. I spent the rest of the night on the couch with some ice and compression sleeves on.
I’ve struggled with calf issues in the past. I don’t think it’s a major strain, but it’s a nice, unhappy pull. I’m really frustrated at the moment. T25 day 3 calls for the Total Body Circuit. I’m guessing the calf isn’t going to be ready to handle that tonight, so I might swap out and do Total Abs instead.
