I did W1 without any problems (obviously it was difficult but I did it without having to stop or anything) and my muscles everywhere hurt but slowly got better as normal. And I did this week landing on the ball of my foot cos that's what felt most natural and hurt least. So when I got to W2 and the lady said land on your heel I started to do this (and I don't know if this is the reason why) but W2R1 really made my calves hurt, especially the inner calf muscles which I find hard to stretch. I thought maybe it was the way I was landing and my calves would just have to be trained in a different way. The day after they hurt so much when walking. W2R2 was even more painful but I didn't have to stop and I kept at it through the pain, the day after hurt even more. But I've just done W2R3 and it was agony. It's not getting any better, but worse. I had to stop between every run to try and stretch my calves and had to walk for almost 2 of the runs cos of the pain. I feel so defeated and frustrated now I don't know what to do. This calf pain is the only thing holding me back, I don't feel too out of puff to carry on, my other muscles aren't too bad and mentally I know I could. I have jogging trainers, I stretch before and after (and now during) and I land on the heel (which now after reading this some people are saying is a bad idea?). I'm dreading the next run cos of the pain but I don't want to stop because I don't want to get out of the habit.
If I carry on will it get better? Or do I need to change something?
Sorry for the very long-winded question.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
