Well it appears my thoroughly strained calf will take a week or two (or more) to heal. I can't believe I am saying this but I am desperate to get back out and run. After turning a twinge into a strain by coming back early last time I am anxious to ease myself back in. I have lined up some very easy swimming with my toddler which I hope will help and walking with him on my shoulders also seems to help for some reason.
Do any runners have experience from coming back from a strain? I want to get back to 30 minutes but suspect I will need to go back a few weeks. Any advice from someone who has gone through this would be great as I really have no experience with this sort of a thing.
