hi taranpreet, massage your calf muscle to release any stiffness. stretch your calf before and after any run. also ice your calf when it pains. check if your running shoes or soles are worn out. if the pain still persists, then see a sports doctor. the pain may be originating from your lower back

hi sharwan, the best indian timing is 64-65 mins. and this is achieved by professional athletes whose job it is to run. if you want to try and achieve this then you will have to train as a professional athlete under the guidance of a long distance coach.

hi nithin, instead of running continuously foe 2kms try this, run around 1km not too fast then walk for around 200mts. run again for 1km and walk for 200mts. then run for 500mts and walk again. this way you will be able to cover more distance. the idea is to relax before you get too tired. the walking distance will get shorter as you get fitter. you will also run longer. wining the marathon is a long run goal. you are young and if you have the passion you can train professionally under a long distance coach.

Hello Coach
i running for the first time(half marathon). i've developed pain in my knees when i run, pls suggest me some stretches which will help me.
thank you Sir.

hi shalu, the pain in your knee could be because of an imbalance in the strength of your muscles (hamstring, quadriceps,gluteal muscles ) it could also be because of your wrong running posture or shoes. ice your knees after every run. rest for 2-3days if you knee pains and then start running gradually. if the pain persists then consult a sports doctor.
regards, savio
