Calves

Well here I am again embarking on the C25K again for the third time in a year, this time with another daughter (why they couldn't start together I do not know. Started out this morning after my own run and my golly it is a warm day - think I much prefer to run in less warm temperatures. But - we persevered and I am so proud she completed run 3 Week 4 , a question for everyone she is complaining of hurting calves - as anyone any suggestions please :)

Warm weather today was forecast...

Hurting calves could could be down to a number of things.. can massage with fingers or foam roller them.. see links below...

No chance of resting on your laurels then? Oh you are so lucky to have not one but two daughters doing/done the c25. My daughter thinks I’m mad. What an inspiration you must be to them. I wonder how many 5kms you’ve run now? Good luck for week 5, hope her calves have eased.😎

Thank you I'm not sure I'm lucky ( if they would encourage each other and run together that would help). I know I'm exhausted I am doing my own 30 min run and then one of theirs (they won't go on their own either). have only run 5km 3 times in one hit since I graduated last sept - I am a very slow plodder - we went out last night and she managed the run - got a tip from this forum to drink more water - so here's onto week 5 😀

Well done Heartlesstroll ...how lovely that you’re helping your other Daughter....she must’ve seen how wonderful it was for your other Daughter & decided she needed some one-to-one with her Mum too?!!!! Not sure on her hurting calves though...how does she land when she’s running?? X

Apparently I'm "too embarrassing" to run with. (17 year old daughter who has made the eye rolling thing an art form!). Good luck & keep on running.

Yep know what you mean they do that too - far too often usually when I've just got dressed to accompany them somewhere 😀
