I'm running Brighton again in less than two weeks.
I did a quick-ish 5 miles last wednesday but pulled up near the end with what felt like a calf strain.
I've now localised the pain to the soleus muscle, which still feels tights and bruised.
I've not run since but have managed to cross train using my turbo trainer without pain. I've iced a lot, then had warm baths.
Should I stretch at all? and could this be related to a tight achilles? I always seem to have issues with achilles.
I also wore my low heeled trainers which no doubt added to the cause.
Any help/advice would be appreicated. I'm getting desperate now. March was a write off through illness and then this injury.
