There are so many great places around Killarney allowing everyone to get out walking and running now the evenings are longer and warmer again.

This has been noted in the clinic by a recent number of walkers and runners coming in complaining of calf pain when walking.

The common story is that they have tried loads of stretching, foam rolling, massages, and putting themselves through all sorts of painful treatments with some short term relief but as soon as they get back out there the problem comes back.

When we increase our walking or running distance, time or even the amount of hills we climb our calf muscles really work a lot and like any other muscle it takes time to adapt.

The number of people who come in with really flexible ankles and calves because they have been doing loads of stretching is quite notable. They are however missing one key ingredient to resolve their problem. Get them stronger!

Single or double leg calf raises off a step or ledge are a great way to build up your calves tolerance to walking and running.

As little as twice a week for three rounds of six to 15 repetitions per leg can be the difference between constantly needing treatment to resolving your problem.

A Killarney resident is trying to find the owner of a designer ring that she found outside her house a few months ago.

Kristy Nicholas, pictured, found the ring on s footpath in the Lackabane Estate in Fossa on December 29 last.

Since then she has exhausted all channels in an effort to find the owner including regular contact with the Gardai and local word of mouth.

“Since that time I worked to find the owner through word of mouth and by filing a report with Gardai. Since I’ve been unsuccessful,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The owner could ring the Killarney Gardai station and provide details to be connected with me. To be reunited a description will be needed, such as the brand and designer and type of ring It’s quite an expensive ring so I’m really hoping to get it back to the right place.”
