I went for a long 12 klm bushwalk last Saturday - it wasn't particularly difficult and we did it quite easily and slowly - it was basically a (long) "walk in the park". I have previously done three x 10k run/walks which were quite hard - and I pulled up fit after them -- but after this "walk", from the next morning onwards, when I get out of bed, my calf muscles are almost frozen. After a bit of hobbling around, they come better - but they are still obviously not happy - went for a "gentle" 5k yesterday morning just using 1minute run/1 minute walk and, although I finished it easily, it was obvious that my legs aren't very happy at all after this walk. I am thinking that only time will fix them - and think I will abandon the plan for a further 11K run/walk which would have been part of my training plan for this week - but now unsure what else to do.
Apart from the usual tight calves when running and the acing calves the next day, has anybody else had this apparent extreme of completely frozen calves??
