I'm on the beach all day, every day during the summer and I therefore do a lot of skimming. I usually do 2-4 hours per session. And if I do that for 2 days straight my ankles and calves usually hurt so much on the third day I can't even skim. My beach has a pretty steep slope and I usually skim with one other friend so I get waves very often.
I was wondering if there was anything I could do to lessen these effects, maybe a stretch or something? Or do I just have to go less often? Or maybe it's the way I run? I have no idea...if I take aspirin I can skim fine, the pain goes away, but I only do that for really good conditions, I rather not be taking ibuprofen every day.
