I have been running since January (the first time I have ever stuck to a new year resolution) and now I seem to have my first injury. I'm absolutely gutted.
I'm training for my first half marathon (Eden Project, 11th Oct) and really worried that I don't think I'm going to be able to do it.
3 weeks ago I started getting really bad shooting calf pain down the outside of my right calf, and also an aching pain on the inside of the same calf. Is this shin splints? I've rested it for 2 weeks, then ran 3 miles on Monday, and 3 miles today, both runs have been really painful, and its still hurting even just walking around.
Feeling very tearful at the prospect of not being at the Eden project. I've been doing so well up to now!
Any advice would be appreciated x
