am in week 5 of walk to run programme. today was the first day i didnt have a tight achiness in my calves. i was just hoping somebody would confirm to me that this is a good thing. the run felt great
yes It is a good thing!
means your muscles are getting used to the effort.
Caroline are you remembering to stretch properly (including your calves) after every run/walk? I think doing this really helps stop those aches and pains.
i have had an ice bath the last couple of times. and i have to walk up three flights of stairs when i;m finished
ice bath gosh you are brave!
hey if it's good enough for paula radcliffe it's good enough for me seriously no calf pain after,
