I have been desperately trying to follow jujus 5-10k plan but am suddenly having tight/ painful calves this starts during run and continues until after stretch and hot bath. Calves are then tender for a few days after. I’ve been wearing a gel heel insert in my trainers for heel pain/ plantar Fasciitis for a couple of months. My trainers are fairly old - I’m thinking 7years maybe? They’ve seen me graduate c25k alright though.
Question I’m asking I guess is could it be the trainers causing tight calves during/ after my run? It’s so frustrating because I just want to run! I frequently end up walking home. 😩
I’m hoping to go and get my gait analysed this weekend.
