I recently suffered a chain of injuries to my left leg while running. I was 10 weeks into my marathon training when I started to experience some discomfort at the front base of my left knee. However after a few days the pain went away. Later the next week I participated in a half marathon and recorded my best time ever. The following week after 3 days of training I woke up to what felt like a ligament strain towards the back outside corner of my left knee. However, I do not know how the injury occurred. I rested my leg for approximately 7 days and then continued with my training. While 2 miles into my run my calf muscle started to tighten. Instead of stopping I tried to run through it. That’s when I felt a sharp pain towards the lower inside portion of my calf muscle which stopped me in my tracks. The interesting thing is that I do not feel the injury when I am cycling or walking. However, when I try to run I feel the pain right away. Did I strain my calf muscle? How long should I stay of the leg? What can I do to speed up recovery?
