30 Bananas a Day!

Hello :),

  I'm trying to get into running so i've been doing a walk-run of 5k every morning right before breakfast. I have been trying to improve my running for a while now, though had to stop for a bit around Christmas because of ice and snow..(then when i thought it was safe I slipped on some ice badly so was out for another week, but that's another story). 

  Basically I'm finding now i'm starting to run again I get muscle pain in my calves ridiculously easily, which I only had before after running a fair distance/pushing myself too hard. I don't want to give myself another injury so my walk-runs have pretty much become walk-walk which is quite frustrating because I feel like breathing-wise I could run for a lot longer(if that makes any sense?!). So I just have a bit of muscle pain but don't really feel like i've done anything.

  Calorie-wise i'm not restricting in any shape or form, I usually get about 2500 (as an estimate). I have one cooked meal a day usually around noon of rice and vegetables with soya sauce(with salt, the reduced salt varieties I found contained lactic acid) and for greens I do my best to get 2 romaines/flat a day. I keep fat really low, having nuts/half an avocado once a fortnight. I recently started taking raw d-3 instead of regular vitamin d dairy-free tablets I have. I wear the exact same shoes as I had before, which are vivobarefoot (because my feet are kind of curved, I thought this would be the best kind). Also my sleep is as good as ever.

So i'm at a bit of a loss what could cause this sudden weakness, seems a bit drastic because i havn't been out of action that long and I had still been walking around doing things in this time. would going 100% raw help my recovery? Is there something I could be missing?

Maybe you should stop running every day, and take it every three days or so to begin with. And use the time you spare to build up strength you need for running, like doing squats, calves raises and other exercises, even indoor. They will help you gain endurance and strength and improve your running more than to go out every day for a walk-run.

First of all, if you're going to eat cooked eat it in the evening and avoid grains, go for potatoes or other tubers instead.  And STOP eating soy sauce. Seriously, you do NOT need that much sodium.
When I ate cooked I put tomato paste on potatoes. This is posibly the best cooked food option out there, as there are only two ingredients (potatoes and tomatoes) and very little sodium, plus no grains.

 

As for your muscle/running, avoid concrete as much as possible as this is very bad for your bones and may contribute to pain. Also you should properly stretch before and after a run, I have found that this helps with speed and endurance and prevents soreness. But maybe running isn't for you; perhaps you should try a low-impact activity like biking or swimming instead?

Also, how old are you?

Did you do any blood tests recently ?
You should know if you have enough vitamins, especially in the middle of winter.
Like B12 and D.
