Hooray ran 5k!

Finally went for it and did a 5k today for the first time! Took over 40 mins so not a great time, but felt comfortable and like a runner! Did have a bit of trouble with my calves though - went rock hard very quickly and kept hurting, but ran through the pain and eventually eased a bit! Have signed up for a 5k run and now confident I will be able to complete it! Happy day! x

  • That's brilliant news! AND you've signed up for a 5k run! really impressive!

    I nearly always stretch after the warm up walk and find that this does help with the calves.

  • Very impresses! Happy running.

  • It's still 5K, well done. Sort out the calf problem and you're time will improve. It's a brilliant feeling getting to the first 5K no matter what the time :)
