Hi all I had an calf injury 4 months ago was told last week to start gentle 100 mtrs at a time no more than 5 over 5k to start with. Calf is a bit better now but whole body feels achy and general tiredness in legs, missing the running but can hardly do 5k walking as legs so tired any advice to try get them working again so I can get back out again.

Cheers norrie.

Welcome to fetch

If you have had 4 months off exercising then you will feel this way
Going from nothing to 5k even walking is a lot
I’d definitely say do more frequent but shorter walks even 1/2 mile morning and night to get your legs used to it again

Nice and easy does it
Also try pool running

What exercise did you do during the 4 months?

Aching all over seems strange. Tired legs makes sense, just need to pick the running up gradually. Will be fine a couple of weeks, I'd think.

Calf itself is my biggest concern. Each time I restarted, I re damaged it - tear or strain. Carefully does it! I also have Achilles issues related to the calf, I think?

Best of luck. :-) G

Got something to say?
