Just Dayum

well…  I’ve done gone and tweaked that same muscle in my right calf I hurt reffing soccer back in June.  Why do these things happen during the most innocuous of movements?  I opened the bathroom door to leave, made a left, struck my right leg out to make a left turn down the hall way and OUCH!

Fortunately for me, it wasn’t nearly as painful as it was at the soccer fields.  I’m debating right now whether or not to run on it this evening.  Last time it happened, I reffed the whole weekend with it like that.  This time?  meh…  We’ll see how I feel this afternoon.

I wore my Vibrams on my 4 mile run yesterday.  Only, I was a little smarter.  I did the first two miles in the K-swiss, then stopped at the car to slip on the Vibrams.  I then did two more miles in those.  Everything was fine.  My pace was a wee bit slower in the Vibrams, but other than that, it went really well. 

I don’t think my little calf issue today had anything to do with it, but you never know…

Ouch! I hate those stupid bathroom injuries. Sometimes the smallest movements are just painful. Take some advil and roll tonight.
