Report Reluctant runner/walker/jogger in Accountability Check-in Posted February 26, 2015 Been awhile since I have posted a pulled calf muscle no fun. I was out for a good 2 weeks. Would've have been back sooner if I wasn't so stubborn and tried to work the 'torn' muscle while it was still healing. The second week I did no walking at all just did my stretching exercises. On Sunday tried to do W6D1 as soon as I felt the muscle tightening I stopped and just walked. On Monday I did my usual walk and on Tuesday did W6D1, those two weeks off really made it tough, my calf muscle still felt a bit tight but not hurting so carried on and completed it. Wednesday normal walk. Thurs completed day2 still not 100% but I am looking forward to completing week 6 tomorrow. I have learnt that I need to warm up properly so I am doing my stretching exercise in addition to the normal 5min brisk walk. And again when after the cool down period.
