This is getting frustrating. Weeks 1 through 8 all completed without any issues other than shin splints on the first of the longer runs, and I’m still trying to do week 9 more than 2 weeks after starting it.
Just over 2 weeks ago I had to abandon w9r1 with calf pain after just 2 minutes. Last Thursday I managed to complete that run no problem. Last night I headed out for run 2 and exactly 10 minutes in I felt the same calf twinge badly enough to make me slow to a walk. I walked for another 5 mins and it felt fine again, so sped up again. Another 8 minutes and the feeling of tightness came back. I slowed to a walk again and walked home. It’s not painful but it feels tight, so I’ll have to rest it again.
Looks like my plan to graduate before Christmas is out of the window 😔
