Hello! I have been lurking on here for a good few weeks. Learning the tips and tricks and being inspired by all your hard efforts, which have in turn, kept me going and spurred me on during my C25K journey. However I have encountered a bit of a problem and would love some advice!
I started my W3D2 run yesterday. I had had a bit of soreness on the front of my shins from W3D1 and so had given myself 2 days rest and the soreness had gone so assumed I would be alright... how wrong I was. Warm up fine, get into the second run (very slow jog) and my calves go completely tight and I cannot run no more. Manage to hobble home and I have a pain down the front of my shins and during the course of the afternoon my calves swell slightly.
This was yesterday... this morning the swell has gone down slightly and they ache less. Has this happened because I have been going harder/faster than I thought I was? I got fitted for running shoes and also given a pair of shock absorb-er insoles which help with impact of running which I use every time.
Any advice for recovery and anything would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for reading!
