Overall I am hanging in there and had a few good weeks and then a few days after I did 18 miles at a great pace I did something to my right calf (non TKR leg). It was the first time in 20 years of running that I called my wife to come get me. I wasn't far from the house but I didn't want to make things worse than they were. The right calf injury was 23 December. I took 7 days off from doing anything, after all it was Christmas and I was driving out to see the grandkids and it just gave me an excuse not to run while I was there.
7-days later, 30 December, I went for a short run to test the calf out. No issues, 2.25 miles at a sub-10 minute pace. So why not pick up where I left off on my training, it has only been 7 days. So Saturday for my long run I was suppose to run 12 miles, I decided I would do 20 since I missed the 20 miler. I headed out for my normal 6.5 mile loop and during mile 5 I felt a slight twinge in my right calf. I pulled up and walked home. I didn't want to make it any worse or aggravate it any more than I already had.
Sunday I rode my bike on the trainer for 50 miles to include a 6.1 mile Zwift race. Monday I followed up what should have been a swim day and made it another ride day since I just didn't feel like driving to the gym. I added another hour on the bike. I wasn't putting in any real hard efforts just keeping it rolling along.
Today, I headed out for another run to see how things felt. It went well with 7.25 miles in just over 7 minutes averaging 9:45 pace. I am happy with that. Hopefully everything continues to go well and I am able to hit my 20 miler this weekend.
I am 2-weeks from having hernia surgery which will take me out of running for 2-weeks so hopefully that doesn't set me back to much.
Happy training all.
