    Ow, ouch, $#@%~@#R%%^T!!@!

    I got this thing called the stick. It is used much like a roller pin for some massage ltherapy. I usually get shin and IT band issues when I run but I have kept it in control with a foam roller. Although it has been great, foam rollers are tough to target the shin with.

    This thing is easy work with but holy **** batman, my calves hurt like crazy!. I did as recommended, the 10-20 passes but I had to bite my lip to get through a couple of points in the shin. Both the soleus and the gastrocnemius hurt but more around what seem like tendons. I hope this gets better as time progresses.

    It actually kinda felt good when I did it too. I was afraid to overdo and damage things.

    Batman is in the Dear Airwick thread. Perhaps he will help you with your calves.

    My calves are pretty toughened up from all of my racewalking so they rarely bother me, but when they do I use the foam roller.

    As my scottish friend says, I have skinny wee legs. She still wants to see me in a kilt though. Crazy woman.

    Alright, you've done it now. Go find yourself a kilt and post some pics.
