So having finished the 9wk programme a couple of weeks ago, and managing 30 mins but not doing 5k in that time, I stepped up to running until I reach 5k.
My last 4 runs have been 5k but I have started getting bad calf pain. I have quite tight calves anyway but it has reached a point where they are cramping up so tight, like I have rocks in them, that I am having to stop running after only about 2k and try and walk it out a bit before I can go on.
This hadn't happened to me at all until now, although I was very unfit when I started - 12 weeks ago now.
Has anyone else experienced this, any advice to help?
I was trying to prepare for a parkrun but my times are actually getting worse as a result of having to keep slowing my running right down from the cramping.
