Hi
I am now 60 (female) have been suffering with tight hamstrings/glutes and calves for over a year now. I have raced at county level since i was 35 until 50. In my 40,s my 10k time was between 39 mins and 42.
My 10 miles 66mins to 68.
5miles 30-31 mins.
I have had massage and done stretching, but it is always there. Do i just accept its age, or how much massage and stretching do i do!!!!!!
When i run my heart rate barely reaches 120 because my hamstrings and glutes slow me down so much! I struggle to do9 min mile pace now?
Please has anyone else been through this?
