What Now??

The right calf again. Went for 6 miles this evening and the right gastrocnemus or possibly the soleus blew up at mile 3 so I got a 3 mile run and a 3 mile limp in. Not fun.

Doing RICE and my little electroshock gadget I got from a chiropractor a few years ago. It runs on a 9 volt battery and sends a pulse of electricity to two electrodes every few seconds.

You can set the intensity, and I go pretty high. I like to watch the muscle involuntarily contract, and it I think it helps.

Not sure what this does for PF Chang.

Major bummer.

Sorry to hear about the injury! There's still time for healing to happen before the race. Keep up with RICE and then take it easy and let your body dictate what you can do. Here's to a speedy recovery!
and Merry Christmas!

Blahhhh, that sucks. Hopefully you've been taking some time off. Even taking an entire week off this close to the marathon won't hurt your training all that much.
