I wear Brooks Adrenaline GTS 8. My current pair has 191 miles on them.

My last pair was retired to gym shoes at 264 miles but at 250 miles my doc said to retire them because my big toe became inflamed. I had a half marathon a week later so he told me to wear them but put new support insoles in them to get me thru the race. I did, then switched the new insoles tomy current pair.

I did my Biggest Loser boot camp class yesterday even though my calf was still stiff. I opted to skip the gym last night and rest. I also took today off as well. I massaged my thigh as best as I could with my hands. My calf has definitely loosen up. It is abot 95% better. I will probably rest it tomorrow and run on Saturday.

Lovey

How much wear is on your running shoes?

Can you tell I don't think this is a spinning issue?

I know it might seem like a strange answer but increase your vitamin B12 intake, my wife had similar problems

My mileage has been between 10 to 12 miles a week because my longest race was a 10K.

I am just in maintenance mode right now until my half marathon training starts next month.

I will stretch more and dosome calf specific stretches.

You say you stretch afterwards but are you stretching before hand? If not start .... after a half mile warm up stretch and stretch again after the run and try stretching throughout the day.

It might losen it up.?

Instinctively, I'd say too much running. What's have your run miles been the past couple of weeks?

My right calf feels really stiff and a little sore but mostly just stiff.

SUN - 6.5 mile run. My legs were a little tired but fine. I did 3/1s but the 3s were at a faster pace because my running partner is faster even though she was slowing b/c of an injury. I stretched afterwards.

MON 45 min Biggest Loser boot camp class in AM; 30 min spinning class in PM; 10 mins on the treadmill after spinning. I stretched after each session.
My calves felt sore after this class even after I stretched. I was pushing in this class be/c it was only 30 mins. I did 10 mins (walking mostly) on the treadmill to help stretch my legs out.

TUES 4.25 mile run. My calves still felt still and sore. I felt it most when I took my 1 min walk break. I did a good stretch afterwards.

Today my left calf seem to have loosen up back to normal but my right one is still stiff and just a little sore. Did I pull or strain a calf muscle in spinning?

Lovey
