The Cripple Diaries: Chapter 1

No running today. My doctor informed me that I will be out for about three to five days. That is very annoying, but I'll survive. All greatness must overcome adversity. Also S/O to my mom for helping roll out my calves because I can't do it well enough.

The Cripple Diaries: Chapter 2

So today looked like a good workout. Sadly, I did a solid hour and a half of core and push-ups. Hopefully I just have to bare this for two more days. My calves are starting to feel better so that's good.

So it was region today. My calf started hurting like no other agin during the 3200 so I pulled out. I can barely walk so I can't race the mile tomorrow. I wasn't going to get to state anyways. Now I can just heal and get ready for XC.

Finally got to run today. It wasn't very long, but my calf felt great! I'll take it easy for the next week or so as I ease back into it. Hopefully it doesn't hurt.

Another solid two for today, and my calf felt good. My leg was sore but that's to be expected. It feels nice to run again.

Another easy two today because I'm still trying to be careful. My little brother came with me because he signed up for the junior high cross country program. I'll train him to be a true champion. He did very well considering this was his first time running. I'm proud of him.

I finally got to run with Reagan again today! It's been a while. We're both coming off of injury though so it was still very short and easy. I think I'll try doing three or thee and a half tomorrow.

Another easy three today. Luke came with me, he did well but was slightly dehydrated.

An easy five with Reagan this morning. My calf felt good so I think I'll push it a little more next week.

Today was a solid workout. Luke did a mile and a half with me for my warmup and then went home. He's starting to get better I think. I ran the first mile and a half of my workout with Teagan and then finished the remaining three miles by myself. They felt really good. I pushed the pace but I didn't have my watch so I don't know what it was. My heart was pumping pretty hard though so I assume it was probably fast. My calf didn't hurt either. I'm going to continue slowly adding to my workout.

Three and a half easy miles for recovery. However, I took the last mile fast because I was feeling good and felt like it. 


Half hour of core, followed by a half out of lifting, followed by 25 minutes of swimming

It's been a few months since I swam last. My shoulders and hips and lower back are sore but that's okay. The cross training is good.

Today was supposed to be a distance day but I was sore from last night. My calf felt a little off so I eased up. I think I did a little too much yesterday. My calf feels better though. I iced, heated, and rolled it. I'll plan my cross training and lifting for my off days. Luke cam with me for a little bit. The hill's that lead out of our neighborhood hurt his knees a little so I'll have him run a downhill course tomorrow. I'm glad he's sticking with it.
