So it was all going well with my training for my 1st marathon (Dublin October 29th 2012). On 28 August I felt a sharp pain in my calf that wouldn't go away. After taking it easy for a couple of weeks and unsuccessfully trying to get running again too soon, I saw a physio on 12/9 who diagnosed my injury. I have progressed to stretching and calf exercises thus far with him.
I have now gone 3 weeks without a long run and not done any running for a week. I was looking for some advice on whether I should forget this race and do another or accept a slower time. I was looking at 3:10 but I guess just getting round is OK for a 1st marathon?
