Workout: unplanned rest day wah wah wah :'(:'(:'(:'(
Okay, a quick update on my janky calf. I tried to take y'alls advice (THANK YOU!) and NOT PANIC (which means I screamed "DON'T PANIC DON'T PANIC DON'T PANIC" at myself repeatedly and congratulated myself on not panicking), and it seems there's been some improvement.
The estimable Holly suggested applying heat to the affected area. I don't think she meant for me to give myself minor burns, which I totally did (by applying a Nalgene full of boiling water to my leg and refusing to move it even though it hurt because DAMMIT I NEED SOME HEAT ON THIS LEG OR I'LL NEVER RUN AGAIN. Side note: have I ever told you how smart I am?), and I think it loosened up some. I'm almost limp-free, but can still very much feel it. All you cramp experts out there, how long do your cramps continue to hurt? I thought cramps went away after, like, two minutes. I'm just trying to figure out if that's what it is. I've still got stress fracture PTSD so my first instinct is to blame it on my bones.
I obviously didn't run today, and I don't think I'll run tomorrow even if I feel significantly better. Hopefully by Thursday I'll be all shiny and new!
[BREAKING: Holly's just commented that cramps can, in fact, be sore for days after. This is VERY COMFORTING. Thanks Holly!]
