Went for another run with my ruck today. I made some modifications before I set out though. The past couple times I went out with my 50lb rock in the ruck I realized I needed to add some padding to avoid hurting my back from the jagged edges of the rock. I picked up some … Read More

When the Calf Strikes Back

January 11, 2012By Tony MatesiWorkouts No Comments

Tonight’s run started out fairly decent. I had planned on making this a long run and though the distance was decent I ended up getting revisited by a calf cramp that started to hinder my performance a few nights ago. I had just shrugged it off to being soreness from taking a week or so … Read More

Tonight was an interesting night. I have had a bit more tightness in my calves then expected from my run a few days ago, combination of staying on the mid-foot, virtually eliminating my heels from touching the ground and doing more sprints than I’m used to. I began the night with 35 minutes of ripping apart a a few stumps … Read More
