Restarting 10k

Recommended Posts

I've been a runner off and on for years, and started using this app in Sept as a way to ease in without overdoing it and getting shin splints. I lost interest during week 3 then...determined to see this through this time, and hoping joining the forum will keep me motivated! Up to wk3day1 as of today. Already increasing my pace!

I started the C25K for the first time in Aug2014. I completed it and ran a 5k in Oct. I decided that I wanted to try to build to a 10k but I also wanted to increase my speed some. I restarted the C25K this time building some speed. I just completed it again and and into the first week of building to 10k. I've really enjoyed the movement and challenges through this. I've been having some calf muscle soreness since I've increased my speed though and am wondering if I need to slow down again and just go at it slow.

Hi There Crash and Momo,

 

Welcome to  the Forums..  Best place to be.   We started an Accountability Board too so you can start a Journal there.  Love it..

 

Momo, If your calves are sore, do some stretching after you warm up.  Mine are on fire today, so I am stretching every chance I get.  Ouch!  

 

Do some speed interval training on the other days and lift weights, that will help.   Good Luck!
