Last Thursday, with 10 days to go before my marathon and after 5 months of training, i got some unpleasant calf pain that isn't going away properly even with rest, massage and medication.

 

I'm going for a short run later to test it. I will be absolutely gutted if I can't start, or worse, finish the race. Wish me luck....

 

:( :(

 

Good luck. A sports physio I used to know recommended regular ice packs for that sort of thing. You can also get a cold wrap thing that you soak in alcohol and as it evaporates it really cools your muscles down and seems to penetrate quite deep and worked well for me.

I did it! 4 hours 8 minutes 39 seconds with no stopping or walking.

 

It took several days to recover and even this morning's parkrun was hard.

Fantastic and well done. You must be very proud and happy??

I finally started my comeback a fortnight ago, not ran for 6 months and manged 4,2&3 mile efforts.
Not sure wether to do another half marathon, however I'll build up distance and then decide.


Made up this page has contiuned to run, haha........ Lovely to see so many posters running and supporting each other, I wasn't interested or motivated in running after my injury, however I'm back and will post updates as and when

Good luck all and thanks for keeping this topic alive, let's hope more people get involved with fitness and improve their own wellbeing and encourage others...... You can do it IF you want to

I did Doncaster parkrun yesterday (nice course) and North Lincs Half today. Weather was horrible and 2 weeks after a marathon so I was happy with 1.52.

 

That's my 10th Half Marathon and I'm aiming for 4 more this year. Over the summer I'm going to work on improving 5K - 10K times.

 

Calf still not right so I might get some physio on it.
