I was rushing to get out the door for my run yesterday. I finished all my chores (dogs, lunches, breakfasts), and
told asked my wonderful husband to take Señor Carlo to school. With hubs help, I made it out the door with my running gear in tow at 7:40 am. The plan was 7 miles.
I need to figure out a different route for my 7 miler since this one came up short. And something horrible happened during mile 5. My calf was on fire. I didn’t know why it was bothering me so much. I just figured I would slow down, and ride it out.
I had to be at work by 10, and I was finished with my run at 9. Which made for a rush of a breakfast and iced coffee.
I did rush to work, and got there with about 5 minutes to spare. When I finally stepped out of my car I realized that my calf was really not happy. I limped around work all day. I work in retail which requires me to be on my feet all day. With each step I was pretty annoyed with my body failing me. Why is this happening??
And when you are annoyed and have a chocolate malted crunch milkshake poster staring you in the face during your lunch, you go buy it.
And you drink the entire thing with out thinking about the calories.
It was so delicious.
And then I found out just how many calories. Why are such delicious things laden with 800 calories?? Yep, this tiny “regular” sized milkshake consisted of 800 calories. It barely covered the run I did. Damn you suggestive poster!
Since the weather is cooling off, last night I snorted some of this stuff.
I woke up this morning feeling very bummy, congested, and sore. My calf is still really hurting. So here’s my plan. Rest today, and tomorrow. If I feel better by Saturday, drop in on the running group. (I’m riding on this). And I’m pretty sure this calf thing has to do with insanity. I think I may be doing too much, is that even a thing? I’m trying to stay positive.
Has the weather changed in your area? Is anyone else congested??
Have you tried the Chocolate Malted Crunch shake from Jack In The Box? Heaven and hell in a cup.
