Janathon day 20. On discovering I have Calf Muscles

After discovering my armpit muscles yesterday, today I discovered I have calf muscles. I was made aware of their existance by a loud shouting as I crawled out of bed this morning. “OW!” they said, “OW OW OW OW OWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!”

Now as a runner I would have thought I’d have quite nice calf muscles, thank you very much. I’ve done plenty of running so they should be good and strong, yes? Yes?? Apparently not. The exercises in this DVD really seem to be working on them (I think it’s the ‘butt kicks’ that’s doing it). Looking on the positive side if it builds up my calf muscles, hopefully that will stop me having any more shin splint problems when I *do* get out for a run again. Result!

I’m also hoping that the DVD works as quickly (and miraculously) as I hope, because I’ve got a posh ‘do’ to go to on Friday night and at the moment I’m not sure I’ll fit into my dress….

  1. As you know (with my current problem and weekly physio visits) I’m becoming very familiar with my calf muscles and how to stretch them! 🙂

  2. You’re doing really well with your stretches – I bet you wouldn’t be shuffling around like I have been today! They are so tight, I might even get my ‘stick’ out and give thema good rollering tonight. Now there’s something to look forward to 🙂
