So. Completed week 3 run 1 today. I have to say that the running part is getting easier. My calves are tight but so long as I stretch out this is fine. I've been told by a trainer at the gym it's because my muscles are out growing the sheath they are contained in and they will feel tight until this catches up with the new muscles.... Has anyone else heard of this?
Having said the above, I covered far less ground during todays run than I have previously. I am normally just finishing the 5 min warm down as I complete my circuit and arrive back at my house.. Today I was still a 5 min walk away from home when Laura signed off.... I found this quite disheartening! Has anyone else experienced this in week 3 also??
I was hoping to see a week on week improvement in distance covered. Not a major step backwards!
