They say you learn something new every day and this morning I learned about my soleus muscles. They're in the back of the leg, just below what you commonly think of as your calf muscles. They're hard muscles to stretch but I found a way and managed to loosen them up a little before rolling into work. They feel fine now so I'm thinking it was due to wearing my Brooks for the first time on this morning's 8-miler around Westlake. The weather is still ideal! Low 60's I would guess. It was 52° when I left the house at 4:40 this morning wearing shorts and a long sleeve top.
