My calves ache. No, more than that. They hardly move. I got the elliptical trainer to help me feel better â€“ knowing I needed to exercise to accomplish that. I knew I’d feel worse at first, but this? I hobble now. I had to step off a curb earlier today and had to jump because I couldn’t stretch out my calf enough to step down smoothly. I wouldn’t hurt this much from 17 minutes a day of walking. I had no idea that elliptical would cause this much over-all muscle soreness on start up. Granted, my knees are happy, so that’s a good thing.
