Re: Vibram Fivefingers - Help
Liam...I too get this problem however it is nothing to do with the vibrams...
I have a pair of the classics and have yet to try running in them. I am only using them for met-con and weightlifting.
I usually run wearing a pair of high end saucony running shoes. After about a mile in to the run I feel my calves start to tighten up. If I continue it gets to the point where I can't run anymore and even walking is painful for the next few weeks, stairs in particular.
I've made enquiries into what causes it however all I get in response is I must have tight calves and to spend time stretching them every day.
I had a timed mile and a half run at work recently and only just managed it before the tell tale signs set in.
I am hoping that switching to the vibrams is going to help alleviate my problem.
