Questions for run/walkers

Today I'm going to decide for or against walking/jogging the RnR series when it comes to Lexington. My goal next year is to do this one in March and the Disney WnD in November. BUT...

I am really new to this running world. About 3
months in. Yesterday I did my 4th race, a 5K. It was my second time on this course. I started out running and then switched to intervals. All of the sudden my calves were on fire, minutes later my toes on my right foot went numb. Then my whole foot went tingly. I did stretch out first and I have. Brooks that I was fitted for. What did I do wrong? It totally messed up my time and my confidence. Is this normal and just pain u have to push through? Or did I not do something correct as a novice?

Any advice greatly appreciated.

My first thought with the numb toes and tingley feet would be your shoes being tied too tight. As we run, our feet swell so what feels OK when we start can be too tight later on. In my second half marathon, I needed to stop at mile 6 to untie and retie my shoes a little bit looser because they were tingling. I'm not sure about the calves but don't let one bad run shake you too much. We all have bad runs and sometimes they happen on race day. Last year I had a miserable race for the Disneyland Half Marathon. I finished in just over 3:11. 2 weeks prior, I did a 13 mile training run in 3:00. Race day just wasn't my day.

I agree with Jeremy. Shoes are usually the culprit for that. Also, in determining your ideal intervals, you need to do Jeff Galloway's magic mile. You can find all that information, and so much more on the runDisney Youtube channel. Good Luck! This sport can take a lot of trial and error, but you will find what works for you!
