Just taken 10 days rest as pulled calf muscle 18 1/2 minutes into 20 minute run. Hoping to regain fitness and start back on week 4. Made the mistake of pushing myself rather than going real steady. Gutted as I was in the zone now feel I have to start again from scratch.

It takes 2 weeks to start losing your fitness... you should be ok to resume week 6, though you may want to test the calf and do a shorter one.
Slow and steady is the best way through this.
Cheers for the tips slow and steady will hopefully prevail.
