Have you used a "stick" before. It will work magic on those calves.

RT,

I've never used anything on my calves. I have never really had any pain in them before. It's odd that this pain came on, in an instance, while I was running very slow. Monday when it happend I didn't think much about it, I just slowed down and just took it easy. Today it came on at mile 8 again so I slowed again. I'm going to be very disappointed if this little thing give me problems on Sunday! I think I will use a stick and beat it if it does give me trouble after all this hard work for the last several weeks!

Roll that calf out. And taper taper taper. You're doing it textbook I like!

Hey I second the 'stick' - it works quite well.

From rAtTLeTrAp on Wed, Apr 17, 2013 at 20:30:10 from 24.19.80.36

Check out www.thestick.com

You can find them at running stores too. Seriously awesome massage tool!

Hey TomK,

I just went to the findmymarathon website and entered and downloaded my pacing plan. That program is great! Look my blog entry for today (4/18) and you'll see what it is.
