The other night in the early morning I was walking for a bit with the intention of then running as I do walking then running, back to walking etc for 11 miles & as I got about a quatrter of a way I got cramp in my right calf which was agony then in the left & within seconds I had the most excruciatingly agonizing cramps in both legs at the same time. Luckily I was smack in the middle of the countryside & nobody heard me scream & cry the place down!
It left me totally immobilized for a while & I couldn't walk, couldn't run, not even limp, it rooted me to the spot for about 15 minutes.
Eventually I managed to carry on walking but the pain was still agony. Time after I managed to carry on running/walking but for about 3 quarters of my 11 miler I had these cramps & painful 'twinges'.
Any advice on how to deal with it while running/walking would be much appreciated!
