Saturday, August 11th:

15 minutes StairMaster, back on the usual machine with the usual settings, but trying not to go up on my toes at all while stepping due to yesterday's severe cramp in my calf
60 minutes shoulders, biceps & triceps routine
45 minute spin class, taking it a little easier, feeling for twinges in my calf

Monday, August 12th:

4.7 mile run in really high humidity with an occasional light sprinkle of rain, which felt laborious, as I worried way too much about whether that awful cramp in my left calf would return. But I was okay. I need to pick up my feet more when I run, though.

Saef, are you stretching your calves? I have to do both calf and soleus as part of my niggly-SI-joint coping strategy. I do each for a minute, both legs - and then I do it again. That's 8 minutes very well spent, in my book.

Birchie, yes, I stretched my calves yesterday, used a foam roller, dug the edge of a foam block into the sore spot, and they feel a bit better today. My hamstrings apparently tightened up from walking all day & through the airport toting luggage while wearing heels. I don't usually wear heels for that long, and it was four straight days of them. My hamstrings apparently got very tight and that led to a cramp in my calf so severe that the muscle visibly spasmed and I screamed out in Pilates class.

It's feeling a little better now, and the best thing is, I've had no problem at night in bed. I was afraid I might wake with a cramp. I will stretch again tonight just before bedtime.

Hello, everyone. I'll join you for a bit and see how I go. I'm not feeling too positive about exercise at the moment as currently I seem to end up too worn out to do anything else and rather sad. Not what you'd call a positive result.

Tuesday: abs routine.

Tuesday, Aug. 13th:

60 minutes chest, shoulders & triceps routine
60 minutes StairMaster, the usual setting, split up oddly with a 15-minute warmup and then back on my lunch hour for the remaining 45 minutes

I overslept, so this took two trips to the gym, once in the morning & again at lunch hour.

Next week it will be difficult to keep to my schedule, as I am losing out on two of my work-from-home days to welcome and begin training a new hire.
