Re: Advice please - push on or take a break

Dont give in just take your training programme back a step and do that one. It's too easy to just give up when you are not feeling well.
Good Luck :)

treadmill

Silly question perhaps but can you still use the Get Running app on the treadmill? Having Cystic Fibrosis i really wouldn't want to be out running in the rain and hope that the treadmill option will be ok.

Gait analysis

I went to a running specialist store today and had a gait analysis done and it was very beneficial indeed. I discovered i certainly do overpronate when running ( I have flat feet ) i got shoes that were recommended for my problem so lets hope that i dont get sore calf muscles as much.

Re: Week 1, Day 2 done.

Hi there i have just completed day 2 of week 1 yesterday and i am really enjoying it :) My right calf has been tight but i am sure it will ease off eventually.
