Hey all! I have been hovering on here for past few weeks! I am In TA in UK but living in Germany. After 6 years of TA I have decided to take it further and go Regular! So I have been beasting my behind...knowing what is ahead of me!! Firstly...I have bought some new trainers...Asics for £20 at JJB sports. Disappointed. I did less than 3 mile in them this week and my Calves were killing...lactic acid i think? Before that i was using my other halfs trainers... SAUCONY FORUM. I never had this pain with these. My O/H said asics are genereally firmer. The Saucony one's have sort of air bubble type underneath which i never knew about. They are far more cushioned on heel. Point I am trying to make is...has anyone had this before? I was a sprinter, competing regularly and for a chick I am fairly muscly but not so flexible!! Could it be my body type? Also with the asics, my toes went numb?? WTF? I didnt tie them too hard as when i did they hurt like fcuk! Maybe just need to break them in. I had this calf tightness before but cant remeber which trainers i had. I thought it was due to me being unflexible but is it the trainers?? Any advice/opinons/experience would be great! My other point is... I had a go at the Press up Pyramid that someone mentioned here. I did 1-10 then back down again...and wow FANTASTIC..its all psycological and I did 110 press ups without realising it! PROPER ONE'S! I would recomend this to anyone! Also...just wondered if this fitness regime on "army fit" is any good IYO? It seems to be working for me. anyone else on it? Sometimes I feel as though I am not doing enough as some people here runnig twice a day for good distance and makes me feel inferior haha...however I dont want to overdo it and get an injury!! any advice here? Have induction at new garison gym tomorrow. wonder if PTI wil give me a personal programme for a crate of maximuscle??
