I was hoping to get to run 3 and be saying how lovely it was to feel like I'd progressed and how much easier I found this one, but no I'm afraid
It's making me well-up at work just thinking about this mornings run!! How silly! For anyone following, I got particularly bad cramp on my run 2 (Tuesday), but I managed to complete the run at a slower pace. I spent the next day covering my leg in deep heat, stretching and gently walking around to ease out the knotty bit.
I set off this morning hoping it would not affect me as I couldn't feel it, but I got to the third run and it hit me again. I paused Laura, stretched, walked it off a bit and carried on. The cramp is so awkward it brings tears, but I think they are just frustration! I completed the podcast, albiet very slowly. I feel so down and out about it, the energy is in me, but I'm getting so stuck. My partner said it was painful to watch and at one point told me to go home, but I'm stubborn and wouldn't leave even if I walked the rest of it. I don't want to give up!!
Does anyone have any tips? The cramp completely overwhelms my left calf, to the point where it feels like lead. I've not pushed through it as I'm terrified it will "ping" and I will be out of the programme.
Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you all!
