I have been half-heartedly running for about 3 years. I started doing the Race for Life then and have done a couple of other 5k's.
I have since signed up for a half in October and it dawned on me today that I have 3 months!
I have been quietly reading your posts and thought that maybe I could absorb some of your enthusiasm!
I have a question...I ran 6.5k last weekend and I had really bad pain in my leg the day after. I have a varicose vein and was wondering if I should get a pair of compression socks?? Would they help? The pain is much better now although it is still a little tender - I have not run this week but am going to try later on today.
I am looking forward to hearing from you
Thanks for your reply! I did a short run earlier and am not sure no if it might be a muscle thing?? It felt okay but I power walked for ages to get myself warmed up!
I am stressing about October and know that as long as I am taking it careful and keep doing it it should be fine. Did you follow a program?
