Hi everyone hope we are all well,
For about 6 weeks now on and off i ve had a stinging pain in my right calf, which happened after running a fast 5k on the treadmill, however pain started the following day. During this time i continued to run on it, which at times had to stop due to tightness and singing pain however on another occasions for managsed to run 16mile on it which felt ok as was running and was only after i felt it. I am pritty new to running as only started last year and have a 2 half marathons and several shorter races losing 3 stone in process.
Unfortunately i had to pull out of my first ever 20miler last weekend due to this problem having tried my legs days earlier and had to stop after 400yards, This week i ve rested my legs as got another half marathon in 10 days time. had no pain when stretching or walkiing and it felt great all week so i tried another 5k run on the treadmill yesterday and felt a twinge again wasnt as bad as been but stopped striaght away. HELP as i am also in training for my first ever full marathon at the end April so i am frustrated at the min.
I ve tried foam rolling my calf at the gym but it seems to hurt more after and appears to make it more swollen.
Any advice please, thought about seeing a physico but heard they are expensive,
thanks for reading
