Chicago RnR 1/2 Marathon
Good link by giddy up. You need to get resistance on toes and bring toes in using tires, cables, bands, weights or whatever. Also, calf stretching is huge for proper function of foot and preventing reoccurence of shin splints. Should also have good support in shoe (are you an over pronator???do you have orthotics???)
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Run hills. High as possible. Mostly steep.
Calves running me up Pikes Peak marathon.
When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Those aren't calves. They're steers!
