As I’m sure you gathered from Friday’s blog post, this past week has been an extremely busy, and exciting, one. I was so honored to be one of my friend Jen’s bridesmaids at her wedding on Thursday, and then the celebration continued in Charlottesville over the weekend. It was a long, but very fun, couple of days.
On top of all of the excitement, I’m continuing to deal with a bit of pain in my right calf. I’ve thought that this was due to running in worn out shoes, and started breaking in a new pair of shoes almost two weeks ago. But between switching to new shoes and doing lots of foam rolling, the pain has yet to fully disappear. Granted, I spent a lot of time on my feet over the past several days with all of the wedding related activities, which I’m sure isn’t helping my calf at all. Hopefully the pain will fully go away soon.
Because of the calf pain, I didn’t complete any cross training this past week. I did get in one 30 minute weight training session, but that’s the only exercise I did beyond running. Hopefully I’ll be able to fit in a bit more exercise this week, before another couple of busy weekends are upon us.

QOTD: Any suggestions for how to alleviate my calf pain? Its usually worse when I’m running or walking as opposed to sitting still.
