So glad to have completed Wk7 and yes, like so many others have experienced, it was a mixed bag. My last run somehow felt harder, not helped by aching right calf muscle and my insistence on trying to tackle the hill in my local park; for the park run it is 3 laps round the park. I could only face it twice and changed my route to run down local streets for most of the latter half. At the end, pain had developed in my left ankle so spent the rest of the day hobbling around and resorting to pain relief - and wondering if I should take a break from the programme. I should be starting Wk8 tomorrow and although the pain relief has allowed me to resume normal walking (walking up and down the stairs was agony last night and this morning), am wondering if I should wait a bit longer to resume and risk losing momentum?
Also, should I even bother with the hills and just concentrate on being able to run for the alloted time and tackle hills once I graduate?
Any advice gratefully received! Thanks in advance!
