I had a days holiday today so ran at 10:00am for a change. Perfect frosty & sunny weather.
What a great run everything going well & a much better pace until 25mins in when my left calf started hurting really badly. I thought "I am not stopping now 3 mins out and I might run the pain off" so I carried on to the end and I still got a much better time.
That was 3 hours ago and the pain hasnt stopped. I have never pulled a muscle before and am wondering if this is what it feels like?
Intense stiffness / cramp. A dull ache all the time and more pain if you flex it.
I dont want this. I can taste the 5k and want to get there. Any recovery advice welcome.
