I feel ecstatic about today's run - 25 minutes I would never have thought I could do this 6 weeks ago. I was really scared about this one so kept positive mantras going from the minute I woke up. We extended our circuit today to vary the run a little bit. My breathing was fine and I could tell my hubby what Laura was saying. The only niggle is still my calves but I tried to ignore the burn and just carried on. I just hope this will get better with time. Heaven help those marathon runners what must their calves feel like!!! The run passed quickly and we did up the pace for the last minute which did let us finish on a high. Having my hubby running with me has been so good for me. I know he could go faster but he stays with me to help me along. Good luck to every one else out there and keep going. If you are approaching week 6 don't be scared you will do it

Well done Mazzero!!
That's fantastic! That feeling of achievement afterwards is great isn't it?!
I have problems with my calves too. It does normally ease off once I get into the run but they're always sore for a day or two after. I'm hoping once I'm completing longer runs more regularly they will get better...wishful thinking!
It's so lovely to have your husband to support you!
Well some again
I have just done this run this morning too! Well done mazzero! Onto week 7 for both of us next week
Well done!!! It's good to hear that we are level pegging. It's just plugging away at it now we know we can go the distance even in this heat. My week 7 begins on Tuesday so I will keep you posted. Good luck
well done, I am approaching week 6 with trepidation. Upto now, I haven't had problems with calf pain (touch wood) but that may have something to do with my running is so slow LOL, week 5 runs 3 tomorrow or Monday depending on time and how I feel x
