I need some reassurance from fellow runners! Loving this running programme but have an ongoing niggle. Practically right from the start of this plan my lower calves have been feeling tight and achey. The left leg is now fine, but I'm still experiencing an ache/tightness in the right leg. I took some advice and had a sports massage on both legs yesterday, and OMG did it hurt!! I completed W6 R2 this morning and again, a little pain to start with and then it went completely. Is this normal to still be feeling an ache in the legs at this far on in the programme? I'm getting a little concerned as although my fitness has improved dramatically and I'm capable of running for longer I fear if this pain does not go away it may prevent me from running longer distances. (I also ride (horses), and it's affecting my lower leg position and foot in the iron etc).
