Bit of an odd one this.....
I have stupidly big calfs.....they are enormous and quite out of proportion with the rest of my body - nothing to do with training, just natural genetics
My question is this: what affect should my "tree trunks" have on my running?
Well all know that distance runners have silly little spindley legs that anyone over 80kg would buckle in a second, but should my legs in theory give me an extra push forwards or is it just a lot of extra weight to carry forwards with each stride?
To be honest, I've kind of assumed that my calfs hampered my running (because I'm not too hot at it), but a few months back in T-Mac's blog when she was playing match the legs to the person there were some pretty good legs on show there too (mentioning no names)......so now I am confused.
