So, I figured today was do or die for Sunday's race. The calf felt rested (enough,) so I suited up and went out in a light rain to see what I could do.
It felt fine for the first 1/2 mile and I was happy to be out there. But then, it just started to act up. Pressure, a little pain and some tightness. I turned around and headed back, having clocked 1.2 miles.
The race is off. I'm off. I going to keep on the resting, icing regimen for at least 1, if not 2, more days and then give it a go again. Hoping that Monday might bring some warm, non-raining weather so I can get on the bike at least.
