Twelve Hours on My Feet
My calves are still killing me today. I have been drinking water every hour, and eating like a horse too. Stretching does help temporarily, and I'm popping two ibuprofen every four hours too. The main stretch that seems to help was one my chiropractor showed me. I put my foot up on a curb or step with the ball of my foot on the edge and foot bent, then lean in with the knee slightly bent. This stretches the muscle deeper inside your calf. For the outer muscle, I've been doing the standard stretch against a wall or door jam. I even tried doing the downward dog yoga stretch behind the counter at work, but chose to stop when customers were giving me funny looks. I decided not to go for a run today for two reasons, I had a 12-hour work day with half spent on my feet, and I can barely walk still.
