Uh ho, another blimen injury! I thought my calf muscle was just sore and tight. I rolled it yesterday with a foam roller and it has obviously aggravated it. I've been sensible, so running, however it feels worst today. Very sore, can hardly flex my food and walking is painful. My plan is to hammer out the bike at lunch time and rest tomorrow. I have a 21 miler planned on Saturday. Training has been going great, 17 miles last week, 13 before and 20 before that. I'm gutted as I already have shin splints on the other leg but that's under control. So, if I can't do my long run this weekend, where does that leave me? Do I do it the following weekend? I planned on tapering 3 weeks before with a 12, 8 and 2? However if I'm still injured, can I do a 20, 8, 2 instead? How do people manage to train for a marathon and cruise through their training schedules without any hiccups!!! Ahhhh. Thanks for your help guys!
