Update-from Pischamp (changed name to Krusty) on dodgy calves.
9 weeks into IMWA campaign, a tad under 3 weeks til race day
1-Newtons now live on power wires outside my house and I'm running in normal running shoes.
2-Lowered seat a little, a lot actually 1cm, much more stable through hips etc (feels like it to me anyway-not sure what i look like though)
3-little to no calf stretching for 9weeks, tiny bit of hammy stretching still.
4-1 or 2 massages a week-never too hard on legs though, just flushing more than anything.
result is basically no calf problems at all other than general fatigue, but that is whole legs not calf specific. Hard to know whether its the newtons or seat height, or a combination of both, i suspect the latter. Either way i am near the start line in 1 piece, have 1 big saturday to get through and i'm there. Ready to rip-in now.
As always, thanks for some great input. Let you know how i go in 3 weeks.
