- Not running - calf muscle/achilles still felt hot after 6 months so I returned to running
CEP leg sleeve
- Changed stride - shifted from heel striker to landing on the outside mid-foot then rolling onto the ball. This helped all my other aches (knees, hips) and prevented achilles from getting really twingy but calf was still pesky
- New shoes - Saucony Kinvara helped me maintain my new stride. Calf still hot
- CEP leg sleeve - honestly, I can't tell if it's actually doing anything but I like it because it makes me think that everything is being held together and, therefore, won't fall apart. It also is a gentle reminder to keep my stride easy, paying casual attention to my delicate tendons.
