It must be bad karma! I missed my run yesterday in favour of a lie-in and so went for the run today instead.....I only managed the five minute warm up, 90 seconds run, 90 seconds walk and half of the three minute run before I pulled something in my left calf. Ow! Ow!

I walked home, with an attempt at running again just in case it was merely cramp, but no go - ow! So, it looks as though I shall be re-doing week three of the programme once my leg is rested up and all better. Hopefully it shouldn't take too long as I didn't push it or ignore it.

But ow! And I was doing so well too, it was a nice bright sunshiny morning and I felt good about it all despite the arrival of Aunt Flo!! (too much information I know!) I am determined not to jump off the wagon altogether just because of this minor set back, once my leg is better I shall be trying again - perhaps I simply didn't warm up enough.

Stay tuned for progress on the Couch to 5k programme! P.S. I have to get this leg healed soon cos I have agreed to take part in the virtual 5k as hosted by weelittleme!

Here's hoping that calf gets better real soon. Injuries are so frustrating. Go with lots of ice and elevation and hopefully you will be back running really soon.
