Suffering From Frequent Sore Calves?

If you perpetually experience sore calves, try stretching your calves after your run, against a wall or by doing the yoga pose called Downward Dog. What’s also recommendable is to “roll” your calves on a foam roller or tennis ball before your run to loosen them up and massage them after it.

Also make sure you warm up well before hill repeats or speedwork by jogging 10 minutes, stretching, jogging five more minutes, then doing four 20-second pickups.

Topical use of arnica cream or peppermint oil can also help, as can avoiding high heels.
