    Hi Derek!
    In all your years of running have you ever had to deal w/ a calf injury?
    I seemed to have strained mine and can’t figure out what is going to make it heal.
    I thought scaling back to walking for a bit (2 weeks) then starting w/ short runs (1/2 mile) was working but today I went out after a rest day and it “seized” up again. Beyond frustrating. Any advice would be welcomed.
    Thanks so much,
    Susan

    If there is pain, get thee to an Orthopedic Surgeon, ASAP! Yes, I have experienced lower leg problems. If the doc says, “You need to quit running.”, go find another one. If the doc says, “I know that you’re not going to quit running, so you need to…”, then you know you have found a good one!
