I've been training for Run to the Beat half marathon in september, after recovering from ITBS which stopped me running for a few months (became addicted to the cross trainer then realised that was making it worse!). My training was going really well, in the last week or so I'd managed to break a few of my PBs for 5 and 6k without even pushing myself to, so everything seemed to be happening quite naturally... THEN I had a 9 hour drive up to Scotland on friday and back down again on Sunday which has just aggravated it hugely.
I had a deep tissue massage on monday which has helped a bit but I'm not sure what to do next as I'd really like some advice about it rather than just hanging around waiting for it to go away. There's no point going to my GP as his advice it to take painkillers and rest for any injury. Should I go to a physio, or a proper sports massage, or osteopath? Or go to my GP and try and get a referral? But that would take ages.
Race is at the end of september which is still a while away so hopefully I'll be ok by then but it's really bringing me down not being able to run even if I wasn't training Scared I'll balloon as well if I have to rest for ages.
