I'll try that thank you ! I have a foam roller, but never actually used it for much more than IT stretches.

Thanks!

Have you tried foam rolling. Using a rumble roller helps me a lot. Yoga position like downward dog also stretches those muscles.

Do a google search for "lower calf stretches." look on the images tab. Lot's of great one's there.

Have you been to the doctor or physical therapist? It could be a problem......

Hi all, I've been running for about 2 years now, but was out of the habit for about 6 months before I got my treadmill. I was doing fine on the treadmill until I set the incline up (just to experiment) and now EVERY time I run I get a dull ache in the back of calves, above the ankle but below the "bulge" of the calf muscle.

I've tried stretching my calves with the exercises recommended on one of the articles here, but they don't seem to be doing much for the area where I'm having the discomfort.

Any suggestions? This is preventing me from running longer distances and it's frustrating. I feel like if I could stretch better it would make all the difference in the world.
Thanks!!
