Runners? Have Any Runners Out There Suffered From Sore Calf Muscles?

  • Sharebar

I don’t just mean ‘muscular’ soreness with is natural. I get this pain in my inner lower calf area, maybe 3 inches above the heal bone and to the back a bit. After a long run, this area just very painful, and if I try to run the next day or a few days after, the pain is unbearable like a stabbing pain every time I step. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and found a simple solution or is it doctor time for me:///
thanx wayne.

  1. I know exactly what you’re going through! I found out that i needed to buy arch supports. They help for a while. But if you just put the arches in your shoes, it wont work. You have to stretch your calf on a board shaped like a triangle with about a 45 degree angle. This will help the stretch and you’ll be back to normal. Also, try to run with your whole foot and stay off of your toes.

    Umm, yeah, everybody! The way you build up your mucles is they get tears in them and then when they heal they’re stronger. You’ve just got a buildup of lactic acid in your calves.

    take a little time off to heal use ice for two days then heat until the weekend, hopefully that will get you feeling better. when you get back, be sure to warm up and stretch before your run and the stretch AGAIN afterward.

    Take a week rest. If the pain is still here afterwards, then yes I guess it is doctor time for you…

    I’d suggest resting for about a week. Then slowly build it up, but don’t take it too fast. Let your whole body (muscles, heart etc.) get used to it.

    i had that problem when i was running track.
    it had turned out that i was screwing up the arch in my foot so i had to get some arch supports.
    but my heel was getting screwed up because i was wearing 4inch heels WAY too much.
    i don’t think that you did that…
    did you?

    That sounds like the area where your Achilles tendon attaches to your calf muscle. Do you stretch your calves very well before you run? If not, that could be your problem. If you do stretch and it still hurts, talk to your doctor and don’t run on it until the medical folks figure out what’s wrong.
