scared to run

I was supposed to do a 4 mile run today but since my leg does not feel right still I opted in stead to do 45 min on the elliptical - which I hate by the way and then I ran 1 mile in 8:17 on treadmill. By the end of the mile I could feel both my IT band and my calf getting tight and starting to pull on my knee. Afterwards I spent some time using the foam roller to loosen things up again - especially my IT bands. I will also be icing my leg and my right foot since it hurt a little bit as well.. I'm really getting tired of these injuries and running - I have to say I'm completely unmotivated to do any running and am actually rather scared to run and feel that sort of pain again. I know I have to but really I don't want to...
