Just what I needed...

So its 13 days and counting till the Surf City Marathon I have been training for. The last week or so my calf had been bothering me a little bit on some of my runs. During and after my last long run this past Saturday, it felt fine though, so I thought I had it kicked. Last night however, it came back with a vengeance. I tried to go do our normal Monday night tempo run with the running club, and even though I planned to go slow, I just couldn't hang. My left Soleus was throbbing and had swelled up half way through the run (just the slow part). At the turn around I noticed my skin felt super tight in my calf and my shoe felt way snug. Great!! Just what I needed. So after ice, the Stick, and more ice, I took the morning run off the schedule and replaced it with 5,000 in the agua. I was going to run tonight, but I think a spin session might be the better call. This sucks.
