Ah! My first hurdle... I have been persevering through awful pains in my calf muscles in the past few runs. However today they finally got too bad and I had to abandon my run. Feeling really annoyed as I have come so far and really want to continue to the end. It doesn’t feel like shin splints as I’ve had them before and it’s different this time. Any tips on calf pain? And how to keep going?

When I had problems with my calves which resulted in an abandoned run and a lot of pain , I sought help from a physio . I am now doing calf strengthening exercises on my rest days and have not had any more problems. £44 well spent. There are some exercises on the nhs website if you want to try that first .
