I have only been running (well run/walk programme) for about 11 weeks. I usually start with a 5 min brisk walk, and various stretches at beginning and same at end.
However, within even 5 mins, my calves get very uncomfortable- best way to describe it is cramp/fatigue. This happens almost every session! It is not just unfitness, although that may be a part of it.
I am overweight, and being honest, I am still improving my diet so to speak. But this discomfort is stopping me from following my Jogscotland programme exactly as expected every day.
I do one or two sessions a week on the treadmill or on a trail, and one on tarmac.
I really want to get rid of this issue, so helpful suggestions woud mean a lot. Am I not drinking enough? Nutritionally, what should I focus on before a run and when?
Lots of questions, and hope someone can help!
