Posted under Health, Injuries, Running, Streak - Jul 9th, 13 - Comments Off on Calf Strain

I made it to 20 days last Thursday. Thursday evening, my left calf felt twingey, so I decided to rest on Friday. That was probably a good idea. That evening, I decided to take my dogs on the same hilly walk around the block we always take, wearing Vibrams (very common for my walk.) About […]
