Torn muscle - advice needed
8:23pm, 10 Sep 2011
MorfI developed a niggle in my left calf at mile 10 in Maidenhead Half Marathon last week which became a sharp pain when I tried to up the pace in the last 500m! From what I have read I think I have torn a muscle - I rested it once I got home but didn't apply ice or compression.
How can I best treat it now?
I really would like to run Oxford Half Marathon in two weeks time!

hairlikeeddyIf you think it's torn, see a doctor or physio. Try rubbing some arnica ointment into it - I find this much better than iboprofen gels. My calves aren't great when I run, I find that wearing compression socks helps during and after.
