I have been doing the C25K and am currently on WK7/D2.
It is going well with a couple of weeks off for knee ligament damage.
My calve muscles are growing and i am losing weight, but since the longer runs of 22 mins and 25 mins i have started to develop a little crap in my calves. Not enough to stop me running.
Can I prevent this and if so how so that it doesnt get worse and i can continue running without the concern?
Anyone offer any help please?
Sounds like calves are getting tight. LOTS of calf stretching straight after runs. Both straight leg and bent knee calf stretches for 1 min at a time. Keep well hydrated - lots of water or isotonic drinks.
A good sports massage on the legs would definitely help loosen them off.
Thanks I will try more stretching and more water first.
