I decided it was about time I stopped being voyeuristic and only reading all the posts which I have found quite inspirational. I am really enjoying the couch to 5k and cannot actually believe how far you run in 25 minutes.
Last night I did the second week 7run, does everyone find the first 4 or 5 minutes of each run an absolute killer? I must admit the first bit of my run is up a steep hill into the village and I always think "Oh God I don't think I'm going to make it"...I always do even if I'm puffing like a steam train by the time I get to the top. Usually once I settle into a rhythm I'm OK anyway last night the muscle at the back of my right thigh and into my buttock went really tight about half way through, I pushed on and when I got home I did lots of stretching as normal but today the muscle is still quite tight especially after an hour in the car driving to work, I did a very funny walk up the stairs and to my desk LOL, has anyone got any tips for helping this not to happen?
I keep stretching as often as possible (when no one's looking so they don't think I'm weird......who am I trying to kid they already know I'm weird!!)
By the way I am female my user name was a bit of an accident.....whoops!
