I’ve been doing juju’s magic plan and am now on week 7. I set out for my 55 min run today but gave up after 12 mins. I had pretty achey calves and a slight sore shins for the last couple of weeks when I’ve been running but have managed to run through it but gave up today.
I drink about 3.5 to 4 litres of water a day. I stretch everyday and do yoga everyday too. I also do CrossFit style training and strength training on the days off from running. I’ve been running for about a year now but a lot of that had been on the treadmill. I completed the couch to 5k twice now and they were both outside. I’m a very active person and have always been exercise mad.
Do you think my difficulty running at the moment could just be the heat in London?
Should I take a break for a week or so? I was thinking it might be because I’m still getting used to long distances?
Thank you x
