Things are hurting less each day. I mentioned a while ago, that I wanted to change my running form, to what I'm convinced is a more natural stride (see Crazy Barefoot Man post). And that's what I've been doing on these short daily runs.
Since I don't have the guts to run barefoot, I bought a pair of Mizuno racing flats, which are practically like running barefoot. And the first couple of times I ran in them, my calves were extraordinarily sore the next 2-3 days or so, but it's getting better each time. And it does seem like I'm settling into the new stride.
We'll see how this plays out. I think if I ease into it slowly I won't get hurt.
