Aargh! All was going so well! I seem to have hit a point where my right calf just *doesn't want* to do a 25-minute run.
I have tried W6R3 twice - the first time I got a pain at the top of the back of my right calf after about 15 minutes, which reduced me to a hobble for a bit, but then I managed to press on (but was limping for the rest of the day). I backtracked and redid W6R2 again (which is two bouts of 10), which was fine. Yesterday I went back to have another go at R3 again, and this time got the same problem after 7 minutes. I did manage to pick up again and did a slightly awkward and slow 15 minute run.
This is sore, I don't know what is the best course of action, and is hampering my ability to run at a speed that actually constitutes exercise.
It feels muscular and is eased with Ibuprofen - does anyone have any ideas about how to get through this? I have been told two things: only warm up with the walk (not other stretches) - I did this, and it still happened. And: just keep on going through it - which seems like an impossibility when the pain hits.
