Hi, yesterday was my wk4, r1 and my calves are so so sore today!
I did my weeks 1 and 2, then I did two weeks of wk3 purely because the look of wk4 scared me, but I needn't have worried after all. It was definitely manageable just going at a steady pace and I was so pleased to have accomplished that first run, but I'm so sore this morning.
I do 3 or 4 runs each week, all on the treadmill, coz I didn't realise you could give yourself the weekend off - I've been doing it religiously every 2nd day.
However Sunday there, should have been my 7th run for wk3, but we had been at Edinb zoo all day, and spent 5 hrs walking, had tea on the way home so then didn't want to run on a full stomach, so I missed it and just started wk4 yesterday.
So I'm wondering if all my walking on Sunday then that run yesterday has made my calves extra tender?
