My concern is that my legs feel very heavy and sluggish when I am running and today my calfs felt really tight and uncomfortable. I'm going to repeat week one until I find it easier does anyone have any tips for "Loosening up my legs "any advice would be much appreciated
Hi I have just completed week one. I feel I a... - Couch to 5K
I use a stretching app. play.google.com/store/apps/...
If you select jogging in the menu it will talk and time you through stretching properly after a run. I like that it does all the timing for you and if I have a particular area that feels tight I can also stretch by body part.
Warm up really well... and try the strength and flex that many of us did with the C25K programme..
Also these knee exercises...
Stretch well after each run too;
No need to repeat runs..if you completed the runs.. then move on, slow and steady
