Have you ever experienced pain from running? Then you need to wake up to some facts. Your running pain is a dangerous condition if neglected. You need to give some attention to some major muscle groups in the calves if you experience pain from running.
The two main muscle groups that need to be addressed are: Gastrocenemius and the soleus. Most of your fellow running partners know the calf stretch exercise in which you essentially stand and push against a wall. While doing your stretch, keeping the knees straight or bending them makes a whole world of difference. If you keep the knees in a straight manner while you are doing those calf stretches then you are allowing the gastrocenemius muscles to stretch. If you do the same running stretches with your knees bent then the soleus muscles stretch. Most of your fellow runners are not completely aware of this difference and this plays an important role.
In order to stretch the muscle group of gastrocenemius, you need to shun the method of dropping the heel while you stand on the curb. This will be dangerous. Instead, keep your body straight and keep one of your legs in the front of the second leg with a slightly bent knee and the other knee in a straight manner.
For the stretch of the soleus muscle all the same rules apply.
You should give timely attention to this problem. You should not neglect it to a point that you need to stop running. If you postpone the treatment, then it becomes more difficult to solve the problem. You can also try a relative rest period in order to combat this problem. The actual meaning of it is to cross train and also reduce your intensity for a brief period. Go swimming instead of running during this time. Also try cycling instead of running during this period of relative rest. Apart from these, stretch before you get up from the bed in the morning.
You need to take adequate care in order to avoid unnecessary complications and injuries from running. This is very important for your health as well as your passion for running. This is the reason why you should be careful in case of any injuries from running. This way you can have a better running experience.
