I'm sure you've been resting it.

Best solution for me, on doctor's advice, was to get a show with a built up heel, so the calf muscle fully rests but you can still walk.

A show repair place added a wedge to an old running shoe of mine, giving the heel about a 3 1/2 inch heel. Looks funny, but the relief was wonderful. I had to walk slow at first, but I could still get around as it healed.

Remember to replace your running shoes every 300-400- miles or every 6 months. Many running related injuries are due to worn out footwear. More
