Hi All - I've just come in from a run that I cut short after 20 minutes due to a twinging left calf that was definitely getting more painful the further I went. The bad news is that I'm running an marathon a week tomorrow and I want to avoid if possible any calf related problems on race day.I've often had calf pain when starting out on a training regime for a full or half marathon but I've not had this problem at this late stage in the training before.
Any suggestions as to how I should minimise the risk of calf problems during the race? Should I back of running completely next week? Any miracle cures or kit (eg compression socks) anyone can suggest? Would it be worth seeing a physio?
Any suggestions are very welcome? I've invested a lot of time and effort training for this event and I'd like to avoid limping around the course in six hours if possible...
