For the last few days I’ve been doing a lot of trail running and walking while staying with some good friends in The Austrian Alps.
This trip has proven a great opportunity to practice my uphill and downhill running form. Even so, my legs are feeling extra demands of unfamiliar terrain – particularly my Calf muscles!
Thankfully I remembered to pack my trusty tennis ball, as the active Gastroc/Soleus release technique featured above is really hitting the spot!
