I'll second Nancy's advice as well. Also, I have recently been having some calf pain (not soreness, actual pain) and it was pointed out to me that the issue might actually be with my toe flexors. So I'm working on trying to strengthen my feet by doing some heel raises. In the process I've discovered that (due to an earlier injury) there's a significant different in my strength between the two feet. And of course it's the weak side where I'm having calf issues.
I was ok running short distances and every other day, but it was when I tried back to back days and speedwork that I started having issues.
So remember -- everything is connected!
Wag more, bark less.
