Since hurting my calf after graduating I have managed only 1 reasonable run out of 5 or so and that was the short speed run. I seem to have completely lost the ability to run for more than about 16 minutes in 1 go. I am worried that I am going backwards.
I am loath to go backwards but think I may have to go back to C25k Week 6 and build up again. After finishing c25k I was looking at doing my first park run and as I was managing almost 5k in 30 minutes was looking forward to hitting that goal. Now I am struggling and really down. I am also worried I will go back to week 6 and still struggle. If anyone else has experience with poor performance after graduation or an injury I would love to hear some advice.
