Lower calf stiffness
After running today for about 6 miles my lower calfs are sore as hell.. so bad it is a pain to work lol... I stretch them before and after i run but its like the soreness is just above the ankle and works up my calf...
I've recently started running again... Incase you didnt know... ive been bulking for a while now with hardly any cardio to keep the bulk to a maximum..
Are my calfs sore because they arent used to running with my new body weight for like 20 - 30 minutes a go.. ?
I used to weigh 11 stone and now im up to 12....
any ideas or tips on how not to get so sore lol but its all good ha ha
:drooling: need water lol :drooling:
They hurt because you havent been running for a long time, just like the first day bak to the gym after a long time. It usually hurts more than the usual. Practice more and you won't get sore :)
And btw everyone gets sore after 6miles :)
Ok so you've put on weight, just started pounding your calf muscles for 6 miles, and now you have sore calf muscles... Hmmmm. What colour shirt did you wear on this run?
Seriously though, try new trainers, and landing with a flat foot. Landing on your heel is tougher. You'll get used to it. I get it a fair bit and just ignore it (still run, play soccer) eventually it goes away. In 3 days or so.
