While running 10k this morning, I felt a slight calf strain about 2k into the run. I stopped, stretched and continued but the pain increased slightly. At 5k, I decided to plough on and finish the 10k. My right calf felt tight initially, so I did lots of stretching, but now it's giving slight pain when walking. How long should I wait before returning to running?
And could this have been caused by overtraining? I've started to increase distances, which led to an ankle sprain that put me out of action for a week, after which I went straight into my normal weekly milage. Is it too much too soon that's causing these injuries? Would cross training help?
