Calf Muscle tear - anyone had this 4 weeks away from marathon

Posted: 21/03/2014 at 15:08

Overstress the calf before it's fully healed and you risk a worse tear and not being able to start your marathon, let alone complete it.  Listen to your physio. 

It is possible to complete a marathon off a longest run of 15 miles. Not ideal and definitely makes it harder and slower but do-able. I have actually completed a marathon off a longest run of 12 miles but definitely wouldn't recommend it; there was a lot of walking involved and it hurt a lot

You've said yourself that the last 20 miler would be a confidence booster so start working on the positve mental attitude and telling yourself that you can and will do it.

Good luck

Hmm. I can see group activities in Chrome so looks like it's a Firefox problem.  Anyone else use Firefox?

Yes, I have changed my privacy setting from 'private' to 'connections and groups' though I haven't actually done anything to upload since changing the settings.

Maybe I need to clear my cache or try a different browser

Cycling is my weakness too, my power to weight ratio is absoltely crap so put any incline in front of me and my speed goes from reasonable to dead slow.  I've done the distance before so know I can do it, just need to get enough miles in over the next 14.5 weeks (eek!) to be able to do it a bit quicker than usual and without trashing my legs.

Decision made. While I'm fairly sure my pirate shorts - the most comfortable tri shorts I own - would be ok to see me through this season at least, I'm going to get a new pair just in case.

Tri shorts - XS please

9hr marathon is extreme! I walked the whole of the Outlaw marathon in about 7hrs a couple of years ago. Hope to do a bit better than that in Austria.

However, I anticipate moving steadily down the field as the day goes on. Moderately respectable 1:20 swim: then I'll get passed by nearly everyone who comes out of the water behind me for a 7- 7:30 bike; anyone who doesn't pass me on the bike probably will on the 'run'!
