Completed week one yesterday as a ploy to get my son training more for his athletics competitions - he thinks he's supporting me, I think I'm supporting him so win all round!
I haven't run or done any exercise really in a few decades so am taking it slow and sensible. However I've noticed that my calves hurt during running and am wondering if this is just unused muscle ache. I'm wearing running shoes and am going to answer shop end on pay day (didn't want to spend a load of money if I hated it) and am running on a local bridle path that's a mix of asphalt and smooth dirt track. I warm up with 5 minutes of brisk walking and follow the plan, any other suggestions?
