I have restarted c25k after a nasty bout if shingles last year.
Before I started again I had started to get tight calf in right leg more than left, although both hurt and feel tight when I stretch. I am struggling to run this time, as they just feel so tight. I am trying to stretch daily a couple of times at least but the left one is painful, I can feel the spot where it hurts and have been rolling on a tennis ball.
I walk regularly to work and back, and do not wear heels that much this pain is worse when I get up in the morning or if I've been sat for a while, and has been going on a few months now, having come in quite suddenly. I do zumba weekly and I do not feel much pain when doing this, but am worried in case something is wrong.
How long will it take to improve these, or should I see my GP.... Is it something else. I saw an orthopaedic surgeon some years ago for plantar fasciitis and they commented on my short tendons I think it was in my leg.... Is it just hereditary .... Will it improve.
Sorry for all the questions but I don't want to make it worse but want to get back to 5k again,
