You need to treat your rehab as a workout in itself. Its not glamorous, nor is it fun, but if you are to get back to activities at 100%, its something you need to do.
1. high impact work like running and skipping causes pain to the injury - SO DONT DO THEM!!! all you are doing is preventing yourself from healing.
2. If the injury happened during deadlifts, then the chances are that you have torn the soleus muscle. Again, avoid deadlift and squats at this stage, as they put great strain on this calve muscle.
3. Introduce contrast therapy to the injury every day (preferably 2-3 sessions a day)
This involves heating the area (heat pack or hot water bottle - not chemical spray or linament) for 10 mins, followed by cold for 5 mins (ice pack, or bag of frozen peas). Within the 10 mins heat, you can do gentle soleus stretches, and some manual massage of the area (yes, it will hurt).
each session should take 45 mins (3 hot/cold transitions).
Whilst dealing with this injury, there is no reason why you cant keep working out around the injury. Lighter resistance cycling for cardio and to keep you legs working, combined with non weight baring upper body work (machines and seated work).
You should give it a full 3 weeks of the above, and then test the leg by using a treadmill- warm up throughly with a brisk walk, then increase the gradient slowly(this puts strain on the calves). If it feels comfortable, then phase out the cycling in favour of hill walking for cardio. If the hill walk causes pain or 'twinges', stop immediately, and continue with your rehab plan.
If this is not completely healed after 4 weeks of rehab, you need a specialist medical diagnosis and treatment.
