All Systems Go
I woke up this morning and the left calf felt as if it was continuing to heal, but it still felt pretty tight and like it had a ways to go. Then, this afternoon after my students had left, it suddenly hit me that the calf felt 100% better. Seriously. No tightness at all and that knot that I had been feeling had dissipated. Cool.
A cold rain was falling though and I failed to pack the proper clothing, so I opted to go home before I ran. After a nap on the couch as the rain died down, I decided I would still keep the mileage very short but pick up the pace a little to test the calf.
It went very well. Felt fine and no aggravations. Mile splits ended up being 7:19, 7:01 and 6:22. I feel confident that I'll be able to do my speed workout tomorrow with no problems. Whew.
Ran 3.1 miles @ 6:54/mile pace.
