Hi, just wanted some advice, I have only been running for around a year now (completed my 1st Half Marathon in March. However I have a reoccurring Calf injury, the 1st time it happened I had gone from running on the road to treadmill, I rested it for two weeks and felt fine, I tried another road run, didn’t get very far and it went again. I went to see a physiotherapist, he gave me some tips and advice. I rested for two weeks, it was fine for a while.
In February I was training for half Marathon and it went again (two weeks before) I went back to Physiotherapist and he gave me some stretches to do 3 times a day, it got me through half Marathon, but it was painful also.
About 3 weeks ago I was running and started to build up my speed, yep it went again! This time it felt worse, I have not been for a run since and went for a sports massage last week; I took some of his advice and am hoping to try a run this weekend.
I am stretching before and after, what am I doing wrong and how can I prevent this happening again, I hate the fact it takes me out of running and is almost a fear each time I run. This is getting really frustrating!
