There's an almost constant analysis going on in my head about what are my priorities and the best way to achieve them. Although I really want to run B2H, my most important race in the next nine months is the Six Foot Track 45km on 12 March.

So, I have a new flexible plan. Starting tomorrow with an easy 2km jog, I'm going to increase the distance by a kilometre a day for the rest of the week and see what happens. If the gradually increasing distance doesn't re-strain the calf, then my supposition is that there will be no setback to the repair process and I'll get to next week with a stronger calf and some running kilometres under my belt. Another low kilometre week will then get me to the three-week soft tissue recovery time and I'll step up the training.
If at any time during this process the calf strain reoccurs, I'll back off, and write off B2H.
