I have just come back from week 5 day 2. Not a niggle. No tight calves, no complaining ankles, no sore shins.
I am obeying all the rules and taking proper rest days now. When I was trying to be all secretive and furtively scuttling out without the rest of the household finding out I had to run 2 days in a row and this was VERY naughty. Consider me sitting on the naughty step I should have been stretching my calves out on.
Once Speedy George found out I thought Hah! I will do an EXTRA flit around at the weekend! I'm all for a bit of rule breaking but it really did set me back and dented my confidence because my legs were SO sore. After my mega-slow lurch around on Tuesday when I was taken over by the wheelbarrow and 2 rest-days (although probs walked/ran about 4km at work yesterday but I can't do anything about that) I felt so much better today. Having spent a good 10 mins stretching out when I got home, my legs feel warm and tingly and happy now.
Come on Sunday, and day 3!
