Second post of today... Sorry...
Just got back from the first run of week 8, and it was bl**dy awful. Nearly killed me, had to stop and walk for 20 seconds a couple of times, and a good minute a mile slower than my last one.
I think I got cocky. My last 4 runs, I've been knocking 20/30 seconds off my mile pace in each one, so I started too fast too soon and expected the same to happen. I know speed doesn't matter, but it is annoying.
More importantly, for the last 6/7 minutes I got a really odd numb, tingly feeling in both calves... Its only just fading now. Anyone know what this is or how to stop it?
