I took the last week off of running because of issues with my left leg. My calf muscle was super, super tight, my heel was hurting from a bone spur (I believe) and I was just not enjoying my runs anymore. Well, rest was just what I needed. I did 6 miles on my lunch break down and I loved every minute of it. No calf pain, very minor pain in my heel that quickly stopped and I had fun. I even managed to hit the trails for a little more than a mile. That really slowed me down since I had to deal with snow, mud and dry trails but it was fun!
I am hoping to get 6 miles in on my lunch the next couple of days, even if it means I get back to work a little late it is worth it!
