Having just completed run 1 of week 8 I got involved in a friendly football game with some middle aged friends and assorted offspring. No problem I thought I do a bit of running I should be more than ok. By the end of it I was shattered, red faced and aching all over. Next morning I awoke to a pulled hamstring and aching calf's and a swollen ankle. I am taking the rest of this week off and starting week 8 again next week. I now know couch to 5K might be great but it's not going to turn me in to an all round sportsman over night.
