Until my first tri and what did i do last night.................. only gone and pulled a muscle in my calf while doind a 10k training session.

I wouldn`t have minded quite so much if it had been in the 1st 1 or 2 k but you just don`t expect this to happen 7k into your run.Any way i started walking home and then it started raining ,then the wind started,then i got cold so i did a bit of a jog to get back home before hypothermia set in.Any way i`ve had ice on it all last night and been stretching it today so i was just wondering if anybody had any other advice to help it mend quicker

    Baby oil mate and a damn good working.

    Keep working that bad boy everyday, it will help it, it will bloody hurt mind but give it a good rubbing.

    If you've strained the muscle, I wouldn't actually stretch it for now until pain subsides. Me thinks, a strained / pulled = torn muscle fibres and over stretching may cause further tears. Spot on the the ice though and you might wanna try hot/cold treatment too. Apparently good for circulation which is good for healing.
