I've just been out for my first run in 3 weeks after incurring a slight tear in my calf muscle.
Just jogged 3 miles and it feels fine but, i'd totally lost my fitness (or so it felt).
No energy and it was slow.
The problem I have is...i have a 10k trail / fell run on Sunday.
I'm doing 4 runs for charity this year so can't really not do it.
What do you suggest - just rest it now and just jog around the course and finish or get out again / cross trainer / spinning class before the run to try and get some fitness back.
I'm new to running so unsure whether i'd actually feel any fitter if i done further training or i'd just get tired for Sunday.
