Well that didn’t go so well. Having run 30 minutes instead of 25 on Thursday morning because I felt good and wanted to push it, I decided to be good today and do the 25 as prescribed by Laura.
After the half way mark my left calf started to niggle. It had done this a week ago but resolved or so I thought. Playing and losing a tennis match on horrible hard courts on Thursday didn’t help.
So I soldiered on with today’s run but after the 25 minutes were up the calf had pretty much seized. Walking home wasn’t fun and then I had to go out and walk on it for another hour as I had committed to a thing locally ages ago.
I iced the muscle (it’s not a big one, just on the inside half way down) but it hasn’t helped.
Can anyone suggest how long I should lay off the run? I understand I will have to repeat Week 7 when I restart which is annoying but hey ho.
