60 minutes elliptical.

Calf still mildly tight. Definitely not ready to run on yet.

60 minutes on elliptical again this morning. 

I had some extra time at lunch today so I went on a walk in the 112 degree heat. I decided to test the calf a bit and did some light jogging intermittently. It didn't hurt at all. I ended up doing 2 miles. I think I am going to try a really slow easy run tomorrow morning if it still feels good.

3 miles nice and easy with an AP of 8:46.  

Calf felt perfect, no pain and no tightness. I'll go farther tomorrow.

I headed out for a run thinking I would do 10, but then I thought of Slick's comment yesterday not to ask a question you don't know the answer to. I wasn't sure if my calf would holdup to 10 miles but was very confident it would be fine for 6, so I changed up my route and ran 6 at AP of 8:17. Then I did one really slow cool down mile. Calf feels good. 

If all feels good tomorrow maybe I'll do 10.

10 easy miles up in the nice cool mountains of Flagstaff at 7000 feet. Calf is healthy but I'm still getting my running legs back. It's amazing how one week of not running even with cross training every day affects running. I'm confident it will all come back next week though.
