I went for my usual walk while my daughter was a preschool today, but for some reason my calf muscles kept tightening up while I was walking. Usually for about the first 20 minutes or so they tend to be a bit sore & tight (nothing major, just have to work through it) and then they usually loosen & feel great even if I walk for over 2 hours. Today, they never did really loosen up.
I cut the walk short (I also have a bunch of stuff I am trying to get down before tomorrow, so I need the extra time) partly due to the fact my legs just kept tightening on me. I managed to get in 75 minutes, but was thinking of doing more when I started out.
Maybe my body is letting me know its not ready to do 2 hours + walking 2 days in a row yet. I know with my schedule tomorrow there is a good chance I won't get any walking in, but I'm hoping to squeeze in another hour if possible. Just have to see what tomorrow brings.
