Two weeks ago started a running course and c25k is recommended to follow between sessions. Missed last week as in Switzerland, no running but a lot of challenging hikes. Back to course last night and alothough the distance and pace were managable, am still getting pain in calf muscles. Last week, was getting some pain whilst walking, but it generally wore off after about 30mins or so. Decided I needed extra warm up, so arrived early and walked around for a good 30 minutes, but still made no difference to the session. I have had gait checked and have new trainers. What next can I do I want to get through this, and to be able to run, but without the encouragement of the group and trainers, I am really struggling to get motivated to do more at home due to the pain. Last night they also recommended doing some other exercise to break up the running, so thinking this may be a way to be able to exercise and to get fitter to help running. Am over weight, so know that this is possibly not helping, so also trying to loose weight to lessen pressure on legs, but know that this is more a long term change. Brought myself a FitBit a few weeks ago, and am aiming to reach my goals each day, which I am managing more often that not. Anyway, rant over. Needed to get my frustrations out somehow!!!
