I am so excited that I am finished with W1!!! My husband and I did it last night and I'm looking forward to starting W2 tomorrow. It's going great, except: my left calf is WAY tighter than my right! It's not debilitating pain or anything, I just want to make sure I'm not running "wrong" somehow. I did have the thought that maybe it's just under worked due to using my right one more when driving???? Has anyone else experienced this when first getting started? Thanks for any feedback, and everyone have a great day!

I'm slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter, but I run.
Another thought. Are you running on an entirely flat surface? Maybe if the surface is sloped, one leg is working harder than the other.
forgot about that. If running on street or sidewalk with a slope come back on the same side of the street to even out the load.
