Wed and Fri I ran on the road, but found the hard surface aggravated the injury.
After talking to mate Paul (who has had a similar injury in the past] I have decided to stick to off road running for a bit.
Running today with Sarah and Jon on the sandhill 6 went really well, the sand and grass reducing the impact to the calf.
On Saturday I went for a 22 mile steady bike ride to Clieves hill on a beautiful summers day.
To try and keep some fitness going I did out of the saddle hill sprints on Monday and Thursday and did a steady ride on Tuesday.
Along with this I have done core training and weight every day along with regular massage on the calf.
Next week I plan to introduce some easy striding on a grass Rugby pitch and carry on alternating between easy running and hard cycle sessions.
After 4 calf muscles pulls in two weeks I need to be very patient and cautious!
