Hi all,my first post on here so please bear with me.....
Im just short of 50 yrs old.I gave up smoking nearly 2 yrs ago but put on a lot of weight!!..I thought id take up running and entered the GSR in October as an incentive to do well.
My problem has been my calfs,they keep going on me.ive had sports physio 4 times but they still keep giving me such bad pain during training sessions.The pain goes after a couple of days but my question is should I keep on with the physio at 37 quid a time or should I forget the GSR and start walking instead..As the race gets nearer im thinking how am I gonna do 10 miles when I cant even manage 1 and a half without 1 of my calfs breaking down,like a lot of people on here im so frustrated with my injury so im open to any advice,be honest,brutal,I really dont mind..maybe some ideas re training,i run 1 1/2 miles every other day,which was advised by my physio...running shoes,aids anything..hope you can help with my dilema.thankyou
