1000 yds of swimming with Riley.  She is training for a tri and so I did the workout with her which actually only called for 850 yds.  Basically a warm up for her - as a competitive swimmer she is accustomed to 6000+ yds of swimming in a single workout.  However she's now retired from it - but nevertheless enjoyed the swim without feeling drained afterwards.  My calf is definitely improving but I won't test it yet.

15 miles on the stationary spin bike at the gym followed by some strength work for abs and arms.  Very cold and windy day (for Florida) with temps in the mid 40's or else I might have gone to the pool.  Stretched out with the foam roller on the calf following the workout and still feel a bit of injury pain there but significantly improved since last week.

PM - easy sort of "medicinal" run - to evaluate the calf strain.  Some walking and easy running until I felt like I could increase the pace.  Seems like it is ok, but still some slight pain there afterwards.  Did some stretching and strength work too.  Put on a compression sock following the workout and will decide tomorrow if I can go again.

PM - 4 miles easy around the Carillon office park.  Left calf was achy and sore after yesterday's test run, but I wore the compression socks for several hours and this morning, though tight, it did not have an "injury" type feel to it, so I ventured outside to run at lunch.  Slight tightness and an "I know it is there" type feel to it kept me from being completely relaxed, but I think it actually felt better after today's run than yesterdays.  Stretched out well and used the foam roller followed by some strength work.

AM - 4 easy untimed miles with Riley.  She had such a story about going to the movies with her friends last night, that she did not realize we'd already gone 2 miles...Took it easy on the calf again today, and on Riley who was a bit winded after her story.
