feeling bit down

I have an injury....my legs have been hurting now for 1 week. I've stopped running and have used ice and rest and exercises and a foam cylinder. Today I went a bit stir crazy and went out for a walk. It was a lovely walk and it was nice to be out in the fresh air and sunshine. It just didn't do it for me though. I tried a bit of gentle jogging and well still now at a point where i can really run. I have a 10K coming up and a couple of weeks after that I have the blaydon races ...really need a bit of advice ...is there anything else i can do and how long do these things take to fix?

  • went out for a little relaxing walk/ run this weekend...very gentle..felt good....doing a 10K next sunday...it is not competative so if I only walk most of it it is not a biggy and it is a very scenic route

  • Compression sleeves?
