Started running in October last year and I ran the Sleaford 1/2M a few weeks ago (1Hr 29). The following day calfs a little stiff but still went out with the intetion of running a steady 9. Got to 2M (running 8min/mile pace) and pulled up with sharp pain in the LHS calf between the bottom of the gastrocnemius and ankle. So I walked home.
I can go spinning, cycling and it's fine, well feel it sometimes. Try and run and it's a no no. When I point my toes straight out, the pain is quite intense in the rear of the calf right in the middle of the gastrocnemius. Had two 45min sports massages now and still painful, though I have been spinning most days 1-2 hours to keep up fitness. Tendor to touch from the front of the leg between the shin and calf muscle about a 1/3 of the way up from the ankle (between ankle and knee). I was planning for the Humber 1/2M late June but deinately struggling now.
Please any ideas..Have had the RICE on most nights and ibroprofen and now 4 days of complete rest
