Self Massage For Tight Calf Muscles After Running

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!

Thanks to Leigh Boyle of for the video.
