Well I have been plodding along nicely completed week 7 without any problems and felt very confident running for 25 minutes.
Then week 8 came and everything ground to a halt. Tried the run but after 10 minutes I have to give up with pain in my calf and had to limp home. Left it a few days and managed to get up to 20 minutes but the same again pain so bad I could not carry on running. Thought I would leave it 4 days this time so tried again today 8 minutes in and the same again.
I just wondered if anyone else had come up against this and if a longer rest may be what I need or maybe some exercise that will help strengthen my calves?
It was all going so well and the high at the end of week 7 has now evaporated.
I am determined to get to the end but the body does not seem to be willing at the moment.
Thanks for any help to get me plodding along again.
