I completed C25K a couple of weeks ago and had 4 really good consolidation runs feeling quite strong.
On Sunday I had a bad day, just didn't feel right, it was raining etc and I had a bit of a pain in my left calf, so walked for a bit and finished the run.
Today I went out and felt my left calf again, which built up until it got worse and started in my right calf after about 2km. So I had a bit of a walk but it didn't get better. Ive given it a rub with voltarol and with a roller but it is still pretty tight and im limping quite heavily. Both sides are sore but mainly my right.
I had issues in week 3 with sore calf muscles and just rested or a few days, slowed down and used a roller, which seemed to do the trick.
Any advice or thoughts on what to do? Plan is to do very little for a couple of days and have a bit of a walk on Thursday/Friday and see how it is. Hopefully it will be ok to run again by Sunday.
