Hi everyone, just after a bit of a vent and maybe some advice really.
I attempted week 5 this morning with a bit of trepidation. Once I got started though I felt great, it was a cool breezy morning, my breathing was under control and my legs found a nice rhythm. I'd parked at my local beach and planned to run alongside the beach in one direction until halfway through the podcast and then turn round and head back to the car. My calf muscle had other ideas. I was right at the furthest point when I'd not long turned round, halfway through the second five minute run feeling good when I felt my calf muscle give way. It was pretty painful and stopped me in my tracks and I had to literally hobble 2k back feeling frustrated, sore, upset, dejected and absolutely freezing
Anyway I don't know what caused this injury, I certainly wasn't going fast and I did the usual warm up and a little stretch! Just wondering how I can help it recover and how long I should rest it for and how I can prevent it happening again. I'm actually itching to get back out there!
