I had to rest for a week from running since I already felt my calves were having this tightening feeling – signals of cramp scared me much. Now, I am back on my route for a 10km race this coming Sunday.
I have the entire week to up my mileage in the morning and have my muscles used to longer routes again; I hope my calves won’t turn numb on me.
Note to self: WARM UP (Pre-race jog) then stretch before the actual run and NOT during the run itself.
This is the start of my half-mary training. I’m WAY FAR from the mileage and training (mentally and physically) but I am ON for the challenge.
With all of your help. I’m excited to meet and get to run with you too! Please be my trainer and I’ll allow myself be ass kicked by your awesomeness 🙂
