When I reached Saturday of this week, I had worked 12 days in a row. But to start the week I started noticing some tenderness in my Calves/Shins. I worried I had increased my mileage too much too fast, especially with my ongoing run streak. I decided to play each day how I felt. My lower legs felt fine before and during my run, but immediately after OUCH! I made sure I was wearing my most supportive shoes, and considered that spending 14 days in my 10-year-old combat boots probably didn’t help my legs feel happy.
