I also bought "The Stick" to massage my calf at home. It is painful too, so it must be working.
I'm still having trouble getting my morning runs in. I plan to rectify that this week by getting up early Tuesday and Thursday and if I don't, brick my run Tuesday and Thursday night. Bricking is not ideal, but I need to get my run volume up. Running once a week is not going to cut it. At least the weather is a bit warmer so I should be able to run outside.
Another big training week this week, capped off with a 4 hour ride. I hope I can do this one outside.
