I'm a 31 year old bloke who's new to running but I aim to do the Cardiff 10k in September. I've been following the BUPA 5k begginer and it all went well. I'm now on the beginner 10k and am starting to struggle and the isue seems to be my recovery.
I can complete the 2 x 18mins intervals on the Tuesday if rested but really struggle when asked to repeat on the Thursday. I seem to have lots of little 'pulls' in my calves or groin and my energy levels are low. Any ideas as to how I can impove my recovery/cope with the demands of what seems a basic training programme?
