Running grinds to a halt

In all my running training, I knew the most important thing was to keep getting stronger without getting hurt. Seem to have blown that one lately.

I probably ran too hard about a week ago with the half marathon followed by a run up to Jupiter Peak. Somewhere along the way, I knotted up my right calf. Even after four days of ice, stretching, heat and Ibuprofen, my slow four mile run this morning became a shitty two mile run and two mile walk. It just keeps knotting up. This appears to be my body's way of saying "stop making me run so hard you old fart!"

I went and got a massage this afternoon so I am hoping the masseuse was better at loosening it up than I have been. Quite the bummer.
