Tomorrow will be W4R2 for me, really enjoying the programme but I'm finding the backs of my calves are quite painful when I start the warm up walk (probably exacerbated by the fact that where I live the start of any route is uphill, so I'm always walking uphill to start off).
Do you all just use the 5 minute warm up on the podcast as your warm up, or do you stretch as well? Are there specific stretches you use if so? By the time I've finished the walk my legs usually feel okay to go or just have little twinges, but I'm concerned about doing any damage when the running distances get longer if I'm starting to run when it's a bit painful...
Thanks in advance!
