Week 11 of my fitness routine starts off with bad news. I jacked up my calf muscle on Sunday night during our soccer game. Walking around with a limp as it tends to get all knotted up. Not sure how bad it is jacked up, hoping just a minor strain. It took a couple of hours of R.I.C.E + Advil to get it to relax last night.
I'm fairly convinced that this happened due to the addition of an Abs and Calves day into my routine and the muscle was already tight and fatigued. If I had gotten a couple more of these in before soccer season kicked in, the injury probably would not have happened.
Bottom line, I missed the gym this morning. Will try to hit it this afternoon, but have a day full of concalls. Cardio options will be limited though, I'm fairly certain I can use the lifecycle if I push more with my heels. While most of my workout should be OK (i.e. weight training), certain leg day exercises may be iffy. On the plus side, if I do miss it will be only be the 3rd day off in 71 days.
I will be posting stats and possibly before/after pics at the end of week 12. I think you will all be impressed (and hopefully to some of my readers inspired) with my results.
