Well Happy New to one and all 😃
Had some technical hitches then got locked out ( only found this out after writing a really long post and wasn’t able to post it and lost it 😂) and could only view so haven’t posted in a while.
Well have been continuing to run 3 times a week since graduation but have found it tough getting out there at times took the advice from here and reduced to twice over Xmas. Decided to join a beginners running club as l thought it would be good to run with others and help me overcome the dreaded hill allergy l have acquired 😂 and be more enjoyable.
Went for my first session on Tuesday ......
Didn’t enjoy it at all was very nervous only about 20 beginners there but it just wasn’t for me and having never had an injury since starting in September l felt a sudden Ping in my L calf and had to abort after 35 mins 😏😝😢
I returned to my car and just sobbed was so so disappointed. Calf feeling much better now just tight so doing some gentle exercises and will rest till Sunday and see how it is and maybe go for a slow gentle short run.
Haven’t decided what to do about the beginners club but don’t think l shall return. They were all at least 20+ years younger and just took off and I felt quite demoralised, don’t like quitting but l have felt so much better about myself and my confidence had increase l don’t want to undo my hard work.
Any of you had experiences like this any words of wisdom would be appreciated. ❤️ have a good day and happy running. X
