Blame Game

My calves have been super sore and tight since Sunday's long run.  Not only is it very unusual for them to be this painful, it's also unusual for me to feel aches and pains from a long run for more than 24 hours afterwards.  Despite pool running yesterday morning and lots of stretching and sticking last night, things are still very tight today.


So do I blame:
A) Running faster than I usually do
B) Epsom salt bath instead of my normal ice bath
C) Stomach issues that prevented me from properly hydrating and refueling right after the run
D) Forgetting to wear compression socks for the rest of Sunday
E) Daylight saving time
F) All of the above

All of the above. It's not nice to pick and choose.

oh, I thought this might be a fun game of blaming other people for the world's (or just your own) problems. Sad.

Not the epsom salt bath. I freaking love those. Waaaaaaaay better than ice baths.
