It's been a funny 10 days. It started with a paced run with my new running group. I was pleased to manage the full 5k at 7m/k, and even more so because there was a moderate hill involved. However, I think I may have strained my Achilles in both legs.
Tuesday was a very slow but steady 30 min run with C25k graduates, calves/Achilles felt stiff but nothing terrible.
Thurs I was away and did my seaside run. 4K, but ended up walking part of it, but mainly in my head rather than my legs.
Parkrun this morning, I had to walk part of it as got cramp in both calves, which spread up one leg into my hip.
I'm really hoping this won't mean a trip to the injury couch🙁
However, advice needed please! I have my first 5k race on Weds, was planning a gentle run on Monday, but would I be better to just rest until the race?
