has anyone got any good stretches for tight calfs? The last few weeks of running have given me tight calf mussels after half an hours run and I just can't seem to stretch them or get rid of the pain while on the run! Thanks for any advice. Gary
I changed my running style from a heel striker to a mid foot striker after advice from a physio about a year ago. ive completed a marathon and don't have any pain while running but have noticed that my trainers get worn down very quickly on the outside edges, one more than the other. They are not trainers for under pronation and do have a lot of cushioning and support. Is this normal? Thanks Gary
Hello I wonder if any 1 can help? I ve had pain in my calfs when running after a weekend of a 20 mile marathon training run which was really hilly. The last few runs I've done since have been quite painfull. I only have 5 weeks to go until the marathon and don't want to miss any runs. I've been stretching my calfs and using a foam roller is there anything elce I can do or a period of time to rest? Thanks for any advice anyone can give. Gary
I've had a pain on the tendon just above my ankle on thin side of my leg. I was doing an 18 week program for a marathon and think I tried to do to much to quick. I took a week off when I first noticed the pain and started back with some Easyer training. The pain is still there when I run And I'd like to get back to training. Does any one know or had this problem befor? I'm not new to running and have completed a couple of marathons in previous years. Thanks for any advice gary.
