I graduated many weeks ago now and have run 3 times every week except for one week where I rested my knees. Since graduating, I have slowly built up to 10k as my regular weekly long run (even managed a 15k on one occasion)! Right now, feeling like I did on C25K and struggling mentally and physically to keep running. My calf muscles are burning/stinging and it is so painful I have to stop and stretch out my legs. What's going on? I have put on a few pounds, my diet is not as good as it could be.
Need to track my food again and lose weight, eat healthily and do strength n flex exercises every day, see if that helps. Have a 10k event in June 😳
