Apparently not uncommon injury, sternocleidomastoid strain is giving me a lot of pain and grief. I was told I should lay off strength training but I have a 10k race this Sunday - hope will be ok?? Has anyone had similar experience?

? How on earth did you strain that muscle running? Never suffered myself but as far as I can see, as long as you don't allow your head to roll all over the place when running, you should be fine. However, I stand to be corrected

Did you diagnose that yourself?

I don't know how I did it - cannot remember the injury and probably it wasn't when running. It did get a bit better and I went on trial run this morning - feels ok so the race is on.
