My calf issues although improving are, unfortunately continuing. So apart from some gentle jogging my training regime presently consists of the above mentioned 'bent knee calf raise' at a rate of 3 sets of 20 reps twice per day.
What I originally thought was a slight twinge to the calf which I would get over with a couple of easy/rest days is now, after 4 weeks, turning into a marathon and patience is wearing a little thin. I must admit I have had 2 'try outs' to see how things are, only to receive a SHARP reminder from the calf in question as to exactly how things are. So I guess I will just have to force myself to be patient a little longer.
