A word of warning to new runners. Please IGNORE LAURA and stop if you feel pain in your legs when running. I hurt my right leg in week five run one three weeks ago and have been on the injury couch since. It's got worse and is now painful all the time and I can only walk for a few minutes before it's too much. GP thinks a its a torn calf muscle and thinks it's a 2- 3 month further recovery time. I have now booked expensive private physio and had to cancel arranged social activities , dog walks etc etc
I should have stopped when it started to ache instead of listening to Laura telling me I could do it. If I ever go back to the programme I certainly will ignore her !
This is painful frustrating and expensive!
I'm sticking to cake not running!!
