First time on the forum and hoping for some guidance on injury:
Had been training for first marathon and was up to 18-19 mile runs when started getting pain in right calf at 12 miles, like a very bad cramp. this started to happen after 10 then 6 then 3 mile runs. Rested calf (almost 2 months now) but still get sharp pains in it.
WhenI tried to run on through it for a few miles the first time I started compensating on my right side and it took 1/2 mile to warm up my hip / hamstring and let me get into stride.
Now I can't run more than 1-2 miles without pain in my upper hamstring, glutes, hip and lower back - this even after the 2 months rest.
Left knee also giving me gip (assume it;s form compesnating ofr the right side?)
Any thoughts welcome as to how a calf problem has escalated so much???
