I'm wondering if I am using my calf muscles too much while I learn to glidewalk.
I have a 15 minute walk to/from work everyday, which is where I try to focus on glidewalking the most, as I have the least interruptions.
However 5 minutes in, both of my calf muscles are aching with use. Every time I propel my leg forward, while pusing off with the arch of my foot, the calves get used extensively to help with the propulsion forward.
My own evaluation suggests that I am maybe not holding my heel down long enough during the process.
But if the quads should be totally relaxed while glidewalking, should the calves be the same, as I start to use my gluts for forward momentum?
