After a cold

Posted: Yesterday at 10:25
I would have done but I haven't regained my sight yet so typing is a tad difficult. Fortunately my temperature is down from the spike of 210 degrees so a 5 miler should be ok.

Thanks all.

Dave, this was man-flu with a touch of Ebola and monkeybutt disease thrown in for good measure! It was touch and go a couple of times whether Id regain full use of my limbs.

I have just had a really heavy cold which has meant that I haven't run for the past 8 days. I intend to go out on Sunday for a run, I normally do 5 miles and am wondering whether having not run for what will be 10 days whether I should adjust my run in any way or if I can just jump straight back in?

Upping my mileage

I use the runs as part of my commute so it will be a minimum of 5 miles. I can run to the next stop which will be around 6 miles. I can also build in a weekend run.

I've been running 5 miles a day, 4 days a week since the beginning of September. I had a week of at the end of September for a holiday and have been running the same since. When would be reasonable to up my mileage? I'd like to increase to of my runs to 6 miles, eventually building up to 10. My aim is to run a half marathon around April/May next year.

Just one other quick question. If I end up having to rest the calf, would using a cross trainer cause any problems?

Thanks both, I'll have a look at the link.
I've just been to runners need and bought a pair of compression socks. The guy there said that with these and gentle post run stretches I should be ok. If not it's a couple of weeks rest!

I run four consecutive days a day, 5 miles each day. I've built up to this over time. I started to experience an ache and tightness in my right calf last Thursday, I don't run on Friday, Saturday or Sunday so I ran yesterday and my calf wasn't too bad. Today though it is worse, the ache is constant an it feels tight if I stretch or go up/down stairs. I'm hoping it's nothing serious because I'm really enjoying my running and am comfortable at 5 miles. My pace is around 9 min 30 a mile. Can anyone offer me any thoughts on what it might be and what I can do about it?
