Good day all Since early on in my training (in the fifth week of Eric Orton's program) I have had pain in my lower calf, mainly in my right leg. The arch on my right foot is also lower than my left foot. I thought that my foot would get stronger and not be a problem (I have been walking and living barefoot for many years before I started running). I followed both the upper body and foot/leg/glute strength programs outlined in the book. Instead it just got worse. Background: In week 11 I went to do sprints but I felt terrible, like I just couldn't go anymore. I rested and even took a week off from running, just walking and stretching daily, hoping it would get better. After the rest I resumed training, redoing week 11 but taking it easy. I felt good and strong except that my right leg was stiffer than my left leg, not sore. I am now at the end of week 12. I did my one mile test on Tuesday where I felt very strong and ran the mile in 5:49. I took Tuesday off, and on Wednesday my calves were getting sore again. When I went out for my walk/run my calves were sore, so I didn't run much at all. The pain is currently on the inside of my shins, between my knees and ankles and mostly on my right leg. Other times my left glute was sore while my right calf was sore. Other times my right hamstring was way stiffer than my left one. My Achilles tendon on my right leg also got sore. And at another time, after doing lower body strength training, my right leg was sore on the inside of my thigh. I think the root of the problem is my right foot. It's arch is lower than my left foot and it sometimes gets sore/tight. Basically I don't know what the problem is. With this nagging injury I have decided to stop running for the next 2 weeks. Next week I will just walk regularly, massage my calves, roll them out and stretch daily and maybe some ice. I won't do strength training in this week. The following week I will also massage my calves, roll and stretch but I will start cycling and swimming in addition to walking. I think I will also resume strength training in this week. Then the following week I will do the same but I will include some short and slow runs. Then if all is well I will do one week of regular running again and resume my training the next week. How does this sound? If you have any suggestions, ideas or advice to help please comment below. I just want to go running again and feel a bit hopeless right now. Willem PS sorry for the long post, I like details.
