    good East River/Chinatown Loop, wi... 4 mi

    First run after my calf injury - not a twinge! Hurrah. My Ipod ran out of batteries half-way through, so no stats. But a very comfortable, decent run, in sunny 28 degree weather.

      Congrats Sara! That is great news. Ice and stretch anyway .... stay smart, stay healthy!

      Hope your calf is sound and that all is well with you on this Christmas Day, Sara! Best to you in the coming year and good luck getting back into some yoga practice.

      Oops - read your whole post and see I was slightly off-topic. I think you were wise to stop as soon as you felt pain. I'd wait a little while longer and in the meantime add gentle stretches to the other cross training if, and only if, they feel good.

      Interesting! When I originally injured it, I definitely read and applied (somewhat haphazardly) the RICE advice. Maybe it's time for the hot bath? I do feel like I've reinjured it now - it's almost as bad as it was in the beginning! Oh well.... maybe I'll do a little of everything. I'm heading out now to get a compression sleeve! Thanks all, I'll keep you updated.... hopefully with good news. :)

      If you keep running 10mpm you'll burn them off, no? I don't know what the weather's like there, but it always takes me more than a mile to warm up. Pushing pace earlier can be done, but it feels terrible to me.

      Oh - I'm not worried it's going to make me fat (although I guess I do worry it might make it harder for my body to shift to fat burning when I want it to). But primarily I worry its not as healthy for me. I've read so much of the primal/low carb community's research (and, OK, propaganda) that I'm reasonably convinced that it's healthier. I also have personal anecdotal evidence that overall it makes it easier for me to stay lean(er and mentally stable. But as long as I'm running.... I need the carbs!

      Hmmm.... How long have you been running?

      I'm a relative beginner (running one year), and I'm also over 40, and I have found that the mythical 10% rule alone is not necessarily protection against injury from over-training.

      I don't honestly think three weeks makes sense, but I have found that giving my body two weeks an increase helps me.

      I generally do this using either a repeat week, (when I add few or no miles) or a fall-back week.

      Yeah, there are lots of rules of thumb, but it all boils down to balancing how much stress you put on your body vs. how much rest you give it in between. The three weeks seems pretty conservative. And like Joe said, how you feel is the best indicator. The Hal Higdon plans that a lot of people, including myself, use also follow the 2 weeks increase, 1 week cut back slightly rule. Works really well for me - after 2 weeks of increase, I'm usually feeling it, and that cut back is very welcome.
