On Tuesday (9th) I tweaked a muscle in my right calf, it's on the bulgey bit at the bottom, any how with rest and stretches with a foam roller it eased enough for me to try a run on Saturday, about a mile and a half into the run it started to hurt, so I stopped and stretched/massaged it; I ended up running and walking till I reached home (about 2 and a half miles).
This Sunday I'm doing a 10k charity off road run, if I rest and use the roller will I be able to do the run? I don't mind running and walking if means I finish.
I'm also training for the Severn Bridge Half at the end of August, so I've got that to consider as well.
Thanks for reading this.l look forward to your advice.
Paula Radcliffe is my running hero and inspiration! I hope that she is able to stay injury free and is able to run the marathon. I will be there cheering Paula on. I had the pleasure of being high fived by Paula at this years Brighton Marathon.
You are a true running hero Paula, keep injury free and see you at the Embankment, well you'll defiently hear me any way!!!!
Didn't go out til 9.45am this morning because the roads and pavements were a bit on the slippery side in places! Did a few impressions of Jane Torvill! Anyway managed a steady 9 miles, pleased that it's done.
