Ahhhhh just went for my second run and had to stop half way through as got cramp in my left thigh and shin 🙊 I had a banana 30 minutes before I went out and had a drink of water just before I went out. It's really cold today and felt cold while I was doing my warm up walk, would it be better to warm up for longer on days like this?? Any tips please help as I don't want that to happen again 😢

  • Yes! I have always done longer warm ups as it takes me ages to get going

    When it's really cold I warm up indoors before hitting the street for the warm up walk

  • Thank you

  • The colder the weather the more you need to warm up, maybe some indoors stuff before you go out.

  • Thank you will try that

  • Hot water bottle under the calves is good
