I was jogging last week and suddenly got a sharp pain in the back of my calf. It is still sore when I try to run although fine when walking. How long before I can run again and what might help?

Google soleus muscle and see if that's where the pain is. If so, it's the muscle involved when your foot strikes down hard so it will be ok with walking. Have a look at soleus stretching exercises online - they really help, as does foam rolling.

Thanks, I will look at that.

Stop wearing high heels. That is the best prevention for calf injuries. I did it and never had a problem since.
