Managed 37mins 4.75K of run walk to try to make my calf recover. It's taking too long to recover and I want it fixed yesterday. Let's see how it is tomorrow.

Oh dear GF, that doesn't sound too good. Did the treadmill session make you feel any better?

Hope it's ok tomorrow GF. Must be awful when you want to get going again. Be worth taking your time though. Don't rush it. You'll be back to full fitness just in time for the spring hopefully.

Thanks Lou I don't do patience that well ;-)

Hope it has helped GF, these calves are a trial aren't they :( .My rungroup leader (who owns our local running shop too) suggested for mine to massage out the knot (which I think is my problem) as much as was bearable, it Really was sore but the next day it was miles better. Still stiff after running but a definite improvement, might be worth a try on yours?

That Injury couch is a popular place at the moment, been there since Christmas and like you want it fixed yesterday. Hope you get off it soon but don't rush it and made things worse.
