View Full Version : Problem when excercising.
02-22-2009, 04:19 AM
I usually try to run a couple KMs a day to keep in shape, lately I've been getting a pain in my calf muscles.
Half way on calf muscle on the inside of the leg (facing other leg) it hurts when I run.
Recommend any stretches to halp?
Is the pain always there?
Does it start up from step one or does it start up later in the run?
Is it there after the run?
The reason I ask is that it may be chemically based or injury based or even nutrient based.
Stretching may or may not help.
here's two links for calf stretching.
one is straight-legged for the gastrocnemius.
one is bent legged for the soleus.
you need to do two stretches to totally hit the calf.

I took like a month off where it was too cold to go outside, I've since invested in a treadmill.
The pain usually only starts around the end of my exercise but now its there even when going up stairs.
Will try stretches.

Why not just rest it for a while?

I've got this too, and pretty bad in my left leg. I think it has something to do with putting stress on it. I got it shortly after starting boxing, where I keep most of my weight on that leg, and when I switch from foot to foot for skipping, it hurts like a bitch on my left leg. I get the pain behind my shin bone, and it's pretty localized. I pressed on it and saw stars from the pain. I went to the doctor and was supposed to mention it, but I forgot.

Jesus christ, from boxing?
Why are you keeping most of your weight on one leg... only time I can think of most of my weight being on one leg is my back leg during a lead hook not often other than that... you orthodox or south paw?

Orthodox, they told me that most of my weight should be on my lead foot, ie left.

I can't think of a time I'm constantly keeping my weight on just one foot man... You need to work on moving around the ring if you're really able to keep all your weight just on your front foot.
