i stretch for about 5 mins before each run and 10 minutes after... as i thought
this would alleviate the tightness but they are still like little rocks! lol

There's a sign on a highway in southern Ontario, "Do not
enter this field unless you can cross it in 9.9 seconds. The
buffalo (i.e. bison) can do it in 10."

Which would set new records for "bad run, today, got
injured."

I once had a neighbor's goat chase me for about 1 mile.  It just trotted
behind me!

Laura, I'm just guessing, as I have abnormally loose ankles
and calves, but perhaps running a rolling pin over them
would help?

lol.. glad to hear it only trotted.... i just heard these thundering hooves....
it was *running* i looked back.. then decided NOT to look back again...  jumped
over a fence... don't ask me how - i went back the next day to loook at it and
wasn't quite sure how i'd got over it.

i will try that. thanks. they have always been extremely tight. i think i
worsened it by using a stepper obsessively and also clenching and relaxing the
muscles as a work out (don't ask!!)

Honest to God, I once ran from a Black Bear. By all the
averages, either it wasn't hungry, or I shouldn't be alive
to tell the tale.

Maybe it was "just a jogger" and not a "runner" ;)
