I'm currently training for my first marathon in April, and I think I have a muscular injury in my calf, it is painful after runs, and the morning after runs in particular, but not too bad during running. I tried resting it for 2-3 weeks, after which it felt fine, I started training slowly again, and the injury re-surfaced, which has put me quite far back in my trainnig plan, so I don't want to take any more time off running if possible.
I've just purchased some Kinesio tape. The pain is in the muscle on the outer side of my shin on both legs, and down the center of my calf muscle at the back of my leg. The pain is more a continuous ache which gets greater after runs, as supposed to stabbing pains.
I wanted your opinion on what to do, whether to continue my training, and what are the best ways to heal it fast?
