Think it's just adjustment difficulties to your new running style or did you tweak something?

I think it is muscular due to the minimal shoe running style.

Well, I am not sure. It is fun to try something new. I guess I find it intriguing. That is motivational for me. I used to like running a lot but it bothered my ITB. So, if I can get adjusted and fit enough to be able to run, I should really enjoy this.

I plan on running thrice weekly, lift twice weekly with a met con following.

Mis-typed

Did you run heel-toe before? If so, then I could see some serious calf pain just from going to a forefoot style. I remember experiencing that, and I was wearing shoes.

Yeah, I'm sure I was a heel striker. I think you're right.

5/16/11. Started a new program. I'll put a link to it sometime. It is 30 seconds of work with 30 seconds rest for five sets of six different exercises. One minute rest between different exercises. Count reps. Today I did:

Goblet squats 45x16x16x14x13x13
Sand bag press x13x9x4x5x5
Pullups bw x5x4x3x3x3
Planks 5 sets
Box jumpsx8x7x5x8x9
DB Swings 45x11x7x5x6x4

On box jumps my calf caused excess pain again on the third set. I switched to unweighted step ups.

I am in such pathetic condition I had to break up four db swings over thirty seconds.

I wish I could offer some insight. I recall there were a couple people here that were into them, though. For some reason I think one of them was strangepork. Might wanna shoot him a PM.

5/27/11. Eight cycles of two minutes running plus one minute walking followed by three cycles of alternating running and walking for one minute each.


I wore my normal running shoes. While I suffered some calf pain, it was not debilitating. I do not know what this mean. Am I getting better? Is the problem the minimal shoes? I can't make a conclusion.

You may need time to adjust. Doing plyometrics on top of switching your running style is a big change IMO.

ETA: That said, some people simply don't like minimal shoes. They aren't right for everyone.

5/28/11 thirty second work intervals thirty second rest for five sets each of:

Lunges 95 pounds
Press 95 pounds
Bent rows 95 pounds
Planks
Jump rope
Sprints


Lunges became bodyweight lingoes. Some muscle in my left leg objected to weighted lunges. Press became a push press. Sprints slowed to jogs.
