As a total amateur runner I've never had to deal with a sports injury before, so when I finished W8R1 limping I was unsure what to do next.
Ever since I started back in October I've had a pain in one of my calf muscles (probably injured it from the get-go, by running to fast for those first 60-second runs that I thought were sprints... silly me!) but after the 28-minute run (first attempt, in the cold, bam!) it's definitely got a lot worse.
Some questions: how do I treat this injury, short of going to a physio? Do I rest or run through it? If I rest, how long for? And do I then prick up from W8R2 or go back a bit?
All help gratefully received!
