I need some advice. About a month ago I hurt my calf running a 10k, after about 7k my right calf started to get really tight and the next day it was quite sore. So ok, couple of weeks resting and it felt better. I tried a slow recovery run and after about 5 mins I got pain in my knee, just under my kneecap and had to limp home feeling sorry for myself. The day after I was limping and walking was painful. I've been stretching and foam rolling for 2 weeks since then and it seems to be slowly getting better but still cant run. I cant quite pinpoint what's causing the problem though as the pain seems to be mostly in the outside of my lower right calf but I get a sharp pain in my knee when I stand and bend by right knee past 90 degrees The hackney half marathon is looming so I'm starting to worry that I wont be fit in time. I'm going to visit my GP next week (though I'm not very hopeful after reading some of the threads on here about the NHS and sports injuries). Anyone any ideas what the problem might be?
