Pain In The Calf

Resolutions of any kind can be a pain in…. my left calf muscle. I was doing my daily walk 15,000 steps, with a 7 kilo backpack the day before Christmas. At around the 8000 steps on the walk, I felt severe tightness on my calf. Soon after, I had to stop and take a taxi home.

Fortunately, I had some old friends in the cabinet. A set of walking sticks I bought in Paris about 15 years ago when I tore my left calf muscle. I used that for a month while visiting Paris, Hungary, Greece, & Istanbul.

It was a fantastic holiday. I got priority service at all the Restaurants, anyway!

After Boxing Day, I purchased a pair of compression calf sleeves from Rebel on Chapel Street. Sixty bucks, the things you need are never on special!

Now I can leave the stick behind and start from the beginning.

Happy New Year.

  1. We decided to sign my son up for Best Karate in Connecticut classes with Mr. Clayton. Nikita was nine years old back then, and now, at thirteen, he still enjoys his karate sessions. Our young son, Andrei, is six years old now, and this is his second year at Clayton’s Kanpo Karate.
