Great thnaks, bought some compression skins for my legs, also had a debate with some other runnrs and they also think it may actually be my achilles and suggested achilles stretches as well. Thanks again will give it a whirl and let you know.
Hi I am hoping for some advice, I have a cycle of lower calf muscle tightening, been to physio and it was worked out, but months later after running it gets tighter and tighter to such an extent I go for a run, do a 100 m and it pulls, i need help with good stretches, physio believed last time it was tight hamstrings where they join the gluts but struggle with knowing what stretches are for these specifically.
I would like to know that also, I had run my fastres 5 mile on Saturday morning, the Sunday whihc is my long run day despite feeling a bit tired I got to about 7 miles and it felt like some body had grabbed my calf like a vice but with 6" nails, really pain full. I rested for a week and started back cycling all semed okay, second week in even walking hurt, but finally 3 days later no pain, so went walking added a little jogging and then intermixed with walking, then after a coupel of miles same pain back!,
absolute nightmare, can't get back to running, any help or advice greatly appreciated.
