My calves have always been a problem for me. I'm a slim girl but have had sort of thick-looking calves and ankles all my life.
I started doing calf raises last night, where you stand up with feet shoulder width apart, and just lift yourself up on your feet so you're standing on tip toes, hold it, then lower down in a controlled fashion.
I intended to do 20, but after about 10 my feet really hurt. Each raise, even right from the very first one, really hurt my feet! Is this supposed to happen? I wasn't wearing any shoes and was doing it on carpet at home.
Each time I raised up, my feet bones would crack slightly and the feet felt very "flat" and like there was too much pressure on them. My ankles also ached afterwards.
The next morning I had absolutely NO pain or discomfort in my calves or legs, but my ankles ached.
Am I doing these wrong? How hard can it be to go up on your tip toes!!!? lol
