On Monday I tried out a new route- it was undulating footpath, hill, then flat, then across a grassy field (no track) and back to footpath.
Then On Wednesday it was late before I could run so I went to gym and used the treadmill. It was the worst run I have had in terms of feet, calf’s, thighs, hips all feeling uncomfortable, cramping and sometimes painful.
I didn’t change pace or incline or distance So I don’t know why this happened. If anything I find switching back to treadmill is usually easier. Could it be the effects of Monday’s run?
I want to run again today but everything still a bit stiff and achy - now I’m worried if I don’t rest I will injure myself. But I want to run!
What do I do??
