After completing my first week two run on Monday, I wasn’t excited about today’s run. I found Monday’s run quite difficult and was panting and puffing away, especially after attempting Laura’s breathing suggestion, safe to say I just didn’t get it! So today I just breathed the way I automatically would and found it a lot easier and was much less out of breath and red faced.
However, today I had really bad cramp-like pains in the arches of my feet most of the way around, any ideas why or what to do about it? Also, my calf muscles felt quite tight. I made sure I stretched properly when I got back home though. Despite the aches and pains I really enjoyed today’s run and I am looking forward to the next one now, just apprehensive about the pains in my arches returning.
