Calf Pulls Are A Common Complaint

When you run, your calf muscles (consisting of the gastrocnemius and soleus) lift your heels around 1,500 times per mile. This strengthens your lower legs but also make them feel tight and overtaxed. Indeed, a survey of 14,000 injured runners told that calf pulls were their second most frequent complaint. So don’t forget on stretching and foam rolling as this will help you stay healthy.
