hello all im newish to running i have done it on and off for a while but last few weeks been trying to get out more and more at least twice a week 3-5 miles each time but more and more often i go out and within few hundred yards i get pain in the achilles and withing mile mile and half it spreads up the calf getting worse and worse to the point i have to walk (limp) home. i dont know y this is i stretch quite well and have okish trainners i think my running stance and stride is ok but something is stopping me any ideas??? thanks
Have you considered a medical opinion? Likely a calf strain or tendonitis, RICE or PRICE whichever is more favoured these daysRest ... limping home is not a sign to go out and try it again !!
hi yeah when i got home i done rice and that helped abit soar next day or to but then if i go again it might do it it might not im not sure what the gp could do they are abit useless round my way?
It could be your doing too much to soon! Another factor to consider is your shoes. I had simlar problems and ended having prescribed orthotics made for me. I now rarely get problems.
You will need to get your legs used to the new regime and muscles need to re-shape!!
