So yesterday, the calf was feeling pretty good, so I decided to try it out with a short run. I'm pleased to report the run was I success -I ran 5K with no calf pain or tightness!
It was very, very slow, and I had to walk a lot to keep my heart rate in the right zone, but I ran!
So, this are looking encouraging for Paris. I don't think I'll be racing it, which is too bad, since my training had been going really well until this calf thing, but hey, stuff happens. ::shrug:: There will be other races. At least I should be able to run.
Resting was hard, but it seems to have worked!

In other news, we picked up our new car yesterday. It's a Smart four door. More details on the car can be found here.
