Achybreaky calves

Oh dear, just got in from W8R1 - I did complete it but my calves really ached all the way round and when I stopped to cool down I was almost limping - only for a couple of minutes and it soon settled but it does take any pleasure out of the run. Hope this gets better with time. I don't think it's my speed - pretty sure I could walk faster, probably just my age….on the plus side my breathing was no problem at all. Onwards and upwards.
