Panic - injured calf muscle, marathon 4 weeks away

Posted: 20/03/2014 at 10:53

I would suggest you see a physio as soon as you can and get it nipped in the bud. I had a really tight calf but it was actually tendinitis in the front of my leg which is why it hurt to flex. Often pain in one place is caused by an issue somewhere else, a physio can direct your rolling and icing more accurately. Once you know what you are dealing with rather than guessing you can rethink your plan and see where that leaves you

Last year they had she wees - a bit odd at first but no queueing so worth the weirdness of a load of bare bums. Dont even consider an ipod that would be such a waste

Yep i'm in for this one, like the look of a nice flat autumn marathon. Have entered and paid but given no thought to flights or accomodation yet, hope it doesnt prove too expensive!

Wow, first race and a marathon abroad, hats off to you Blakey, first race has to be somewhere and might as well be a marathon. Good luck with your training

yep for sure - long run may be the mainstay of the training but it has to work in conjunction with the rest of the week. Thank you.

I'm glad its not just me. I have experimented a bit, I've tried 8-9 20 milers which was ok but I got my autumn pb off  2 x 20, 2 x 22 and 2 x 24 milers and my instinct is to stick with that at least as far as the long runs go. I do however want to try adding more mp runs, which I can maybe do with the medium long runs from the plan.

I am a bit uncomfortable with so few long runs - by long I mean over 20 miles on the 55 mpw plans. I'm not sure I'm confident enough to take on the distance without at least 6 beforehand, although I like the look of the rest of it.

Very late post but I got the time I wanted, 3.30.48 so very happy. Enjoyed the race, thought it well organised and well marshalled, you gotta love a stadium finish.

Really didnt think I was capable of that time but now it would be rude not to target a 3.20 wouldnt it?
