I've just joined and been looking through the forums on calves and varicose veins. Loads of stuff.
I ran a lot in my 30's and 40's : marathons , halves, 10 ks etc...
In my 50's the recurrring calf pulls started and bit by bit I stopped running. Every year (normally after the London's on the TV) I vow to start again: new shoes, new training schedule, the lot.
Yet again the old calf pull / strain comes back.....2 k is all I can manage before it goes.
I can cycle without probs and my general fitness is good. I do all the usual things : exercises, warm ups and downs etc.
I have a large varicose vein snaking over this calf....it causes no probs and no pain. Don't look pretty but at 60 yoa who cares .
COULD this be the cause of my recurring prob, and if so what can I do?
