Workout Wrap-up

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I fully intend on doing a recap of our Easter festivities however I only have time for a quick post tonight. Work was crazy busy and then I had a Girls on the Run 5k Planning Committee meeting this evening.  Plans are starting to come together!

Last week’s workouts were okay – nothing spectacular. I ended up having two rest days and only two running days. I have been having some pain in my ankles and lower calves after running. I’m not sure whether I’m pushing myself too hard or if it’s time for new shoes. I have my 10k race coming up on Sunday so I’ve been taking it a little easy on the running. I definitely do not want to get hurt before the big day. The weird part is, my ankles/calves do not bother me at all while I’m running, only after??

  • Monday – Bootcamp Workout A
  • Tuesday – 3 mile run
  • Wednesday – Rest (icing the ankles)
  • Thursday – Bootcamp Workout B
  • Friday – Rest
  • Saturday – 4 mile run (against the wind)
  • Sunday – Bootcamp Workout C

This week’s schedule looks like this:

  • Monday – Rest
  • Tuesday – 2 mile run
  • Wednesday – Bootcamp Workout A
  • Thursday – 2 mile run
  • Friday – Rest
  • Saturday – Bootcamp Workout B
  • Sunday – Hershey 10k

I will probably add some stretching and lots of icing into the mix!!

Question: Any tips for dealing with ankle/calf pain?
