Calf Tightness- anyone use 'the stick'?

OK, I've been running for 2+ years now and have signed up for the Marine Corps Marathon in October. I'm not formally training for that yet, but have been getting ready for a 10-mile run in early May. Only problem is that my left calf has been tightening up on me lately and preventing me from getting my miles in. Not a full blown strain or tear, but more like a muscle cramp. I'm a big guy and my calves are large, so they get a workout. Even with extra stretching, I'm still having issues.

 

A buddy of mine has suggested that I get 'the stick' and use it on my calves. Does anyone have any personal experience with calf tightness? Anyone else used this device?

 

Thanks

 

Bobby
