I pulled my calf muscle on Friday afternoon - not while running but while walking to school to collect the kids! Properly felt it tear - had to stop and then hobble home. I had been for a run in the morning. I have taken two rest days instead of just the one and due to run tomorrow. It still feels tight - should I risk a run in the morning? I may take some ibuprofen in the morning before I go.
Pulled muscle - ouch! : I pulled my calf muscle... - Couch to 5K
Before I started C25K in April I also got a pull on my calf muscle, this was in January, I had just got off a bus to go for a nice walk along a new walkway, (incidentally, the same walkway that I later in May ran run 3 of week 3 of C25K) It wasn't too bad as I just walked a bit slower for that walk, very annoying I know, it does put you back for a couple of days with your C25K program, I hope you recover very soon, I would not advise you to run if your calf muscle still feels tight.
