Started power walking in Feb 07, by Sept 07 I had lost over 2 stone (i needed to!) The walking got harder on my calfs so I started jogging.
A beginner, having done 5 10k events, my sights are now set on a half marathon towards the end of the year
First Marathon FLM 05-mission accomplished. Love winter running and looking forward to the 2006 season. Constantly fighting a calf strain but I will not be deterred!
giving up smoking and depression in favour of sweat and aching calfs as of august 1st 2003. Aiming for 5k race by christmas and 10k next year if still alive !
hurt me blinkin calf haven't I. But never fear; after 3 months of sitting on my arse I'm on the road to recovery. Watch out Paula.
I ran the London Marathon in 2003. Having suffered with cramp for about 9 miles I still get calf cramp "on demand" 12 months later. Any Ideas?
I used to do a lot of running but due to prolonged injury in both calf muscles had to stop for several years. Now beginning to get back into it slowly and loving every minute.
Unfortunately I consistently get injured. I have problems with my right calf and both achillies otherwise I would be running all the time
Just startedrunningbut due to toarn calf muscle, resting at present, training towards Triathlon. I am 44 yrs old and trying to get the rest of the family involved.
Previously member of Garden City Joggers, Herts, 1992 - 1995. Suffer from recurring injuries - shin splints & calf strain (R. leg).
