I love it here in Colorado. It’s all “healthy” and high altitude and “stuff”. I really want to get all “healthy & stuff”. However, my calves don’t seem to want to cooperate with me and my exercise. A couple years ago, I tore my left medial gastrocnemius muscle and had to wear “the boot” for 6 weeks. Since then I’ve strained both calves several times. A lot of those incidents were DUMB, like walking downstairs or falling down skiing. Well, during our hike on Saturday, I felt the left calf beginning to cramp and strain. So we turned around and went back down. Then, stupid me, decided to take my walk in the hills behind our house yesterday. I felt great! So I decided to run UP a little hill. Ow, ow, ow, ow……then the popping in the calf and the cramping, and I knew I was done.
