Hi, I'm new here. I've never run in my life but I'm determined to complete c25k and run 5k's this year.
I'm currently repeating week 4 because first time around I ended up with sore calves after every run and thought I'll just repeat to condition my body a bit more.
The issue I'm having (I think) is that I'm going too fast (e.g. today I did 2.4km at 6:40/km pace .. too fast for someone who has never run before or so I'm told).
I've been icing and using roller on my calves which sorts them out in a day but then back to square one after every run still. I'm worried about picking up an injury if I keep going at my natural pace as I increase distance with coming weeks.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
