I've already got disproportionately big calves due to years of cycling when I was young. This makes it hard for me to run over just 1km as my calves would feel like going to explode even though my breath is fine. Could you share your experiences or thoughts on this:
- Is running likely to make calves big?
- If so what would be good alternative aerobic exercise to running?
- If not how to reduce calve pain when running?
