I ended up putting a hot water bottle under my calves last night when I got into bed (but once it cooled off, I dumped it out). I don't know if it was that or the rolling, but my calves and ankle felt pretty good today. I did the foam roller when I got home and it made my left calf a little sore (but it did that yesterday,too) so I'm hoping it'll feel good tomorrow.
I'm thinking I'll do TurboJam in the morning and save the running for Thursday. I figure another day off the pounding will be good. Then maybe run again on Saturday (we're going out for Indian buffet with my brother so I need to burn lots of calories ;-).
It was a pretty good day. Not too busy at work but there were a lot of phones calls. I don't usually get any, so that was odd. Only a few aggravating drivers on the road (talking on their stupid cell phones..grrrrrr).
Tomorrow will be a busy day at work so I should head to bed soon.

I tried out my new shoes this morning. With the insoles they came with not the fancy custom ones because you're supposed to start with those slowly and not actually run in them right away. My ankle felt good. As far as I could tell there was no pain there. My achilles tendon area felt a little sore but not sharp pain. I guess I need more stretching for my calves. I rolled them out on the foam roller after I finished. I shall try to do that every day to keep them loose.
We went to the Good Guys Classic Car Show for a couple of hours today. It was fun to see some cars that I haven't seen in a while but it amazes me how much the ones for sale were. A Chevy Nova should not be $10,000. Come on, it's a Nova.
We were starving so we left because we didn't want to eat "fair food." We ended up at a nearby kabob place. My husband had the chicken shwerma plate (shwerma, hummus, rice, salad, pita) and I had the veggie plate (falafel, hummus, tabouli, baba ganoush, dolmas, salad, pitas). It was all very tasty. The baba ganoush was very yogurty and the tabouli was mostly parsley- very refreshing since it was pretty warm in Pleasanton.
Not sure what we'll be doing for dinner. I guess we'll figure that out in a couple of hours.
I hope everybody had a wonderful Sunday.
