On Monday my calf felt fine and so I decided to test it out with what would hopefully turn out to be a 20 minute amble interspersed with a 1 minute walk. In the end it turned out to be only 14 minutes and my calf being sore again. So this time, I will give it more time and do some stretching and strengthening before I go again.
Strangely, despite the setback I a feeling more optimistic and feel like I am on the right track. I am learning to be extremely patient, but I do get so envious when I see people out running and I want to be them.
