Tues 26th was Wk7 Run1 for me and went well until 2 minutes to go when I felt my right calf muscle going. I slowed, determined not to stop and hobbled through my warm down.
I rested for 8 days, and not feeling any pain, went out for Wk7 Run2 last Thur (5th). All going good until 5 mins in when I felt the twinge. This time I stopped immediately and hobbled back.
So my question to you is; how long should you rest an injury, and then what is the best way to return to the schedule, go back a week?
How much fitness is lost during rest?
