As I transition over to the zero drop Merrell Trail Gloves so goes an increase in pain in my calves. This new shoe causes a new gate which in turn causes me to run using new muscle groups. Thus a massive increase in lactic acid build up in my calves. I am scheduled to do an uneventful 3 mi today but after consideration and consultation I will just do a 4 mi walk with Tully to loosen aforementioned calves and hopefully flush some of that lactic acid. But once I started the walk I wanted to jog a bit. Both to get Tully some more exercise as well as test the calves. All in all it went well and the short sections of jogging helped loosen up those calves. I will have a full 3 miler tomorrow at school.
