I went out for a long bike and short run on sunday and since monday the
pain in my left calf has continued to get worse. It seems to be fine
after I walk around and while I haven't been running on it, I did swim
and biked some yesterday. This morning it's painful to walk on and so
the questions are:
can I continue to swim and how about the bike?
why don't I feel any localized spot of pain? (the whole calf seems to
be stiff and sore)
what's the recovery time?
I guess I'll just use the ol RICE method of treatment?
I wanted so much to do the New England Endurance Triathlon which is in
17 days. Can I get it healed by then? Is there anything like a
perpetual cramp or did I just blow out the whole muscle?
Thanks for whatever advise you can give.
