I'm starting to panic. I'm running the London Marathon in April (target time 4 hours) and am having real problems in both calfs which tendonitis of the tibialis anterior. I'm really looking for some advice about how much to push it or if indeed it's just too much to attempt. Everything was going OK until the end of January (though I had suffered these issue previously) but since then I've only managed to do 4 runs of very low milage. Today I only managed two miles until I had a sharp shooting pain in my right calf and had to stop.
I've two questions.
1) Has anyone run a London marathon by replacing long runs with other stamina work, to protect an injury (Rowing/cycling/Swimming/X-training perhaps) and/or does anyone have any advice on this matter
2) If I do keep running and aggravating this injury, am I at risk of causing long term damage?
Any help, advice, support would be so appreciated. I'm starting to feel like I'm losing the battle and am desperate for some tips.
