Right calf muscle keeps blowing up HELP

Same problem for me. I am a heel striker and recently tried changing to mid-foot. Big mistake! My right calf is so painful after the first ten minutes into the run that I have to stop and hobble back home. I am giving it plenty of rest (from running at least) and am concentrating on cycling. This seems to be okay and I can only feel it if I really push it on the bike. I will see how it goes but hopefully will be able to start running again in a week or so. For what it's worth I have changed my shoes now to a new set as the old ones were now really getting ratty and maybe that will help a bit too. It's probably a bad idea to change both my running style AND my shoes at the same time so maybe I'll revert to heel-striking again
