Thanks JC, I only use my trainers for running, at least until they are retired to garden use.

Assuming any soreness has gone by the weekend I'm going to try a combination of your and Jorgan's advice by adding a minute of running to my turbo session and take it from there.

The thought of getting geared up for a 1 minute run seems a bit odd so tacking it onto a turbo makes sense on lost of levels.

I'm back at the physio in 2 weeks so in theory should be up to over 10mins by then, all being well.


good luck!

Managed a whole 1km of running after a 45min bike last night!

I've carried on doing calf raises and stretches since last week but doing a little jog on the spot to see how the calf felt too.

I don't get any discomfort on any of the calf raises but was still getting little twinges with the jogging. I think my weight means even if the calf raises feel ok the extra momentum of the jogging puts a lot more force through.

Anyway the last couple of days, no twinges so tried a little run off the bike and all was well. Now, not to get carried away and cock it all up again!

Thanks again.

No, I've learnt my lesson with the EJC's displeasure at the "j" word and only used it to describe a few steps on the spot to see if I could feel anything in the calf, which I've been building up gradually until I couldn't feel anything adverse anymore.

It was definitely a "run" off the bike but not sure most on here would describe it as that as that 1km did take me 6mins.
