How to make my calf thin after jogging ?

Walk not run: You are building muscle mass in the calf by the pounding of the jogging. Build tone and not the muscle mass by stopping the pounding. Research has proven that running is not better than walking over the course of the "same distance". Stop running and start walking the same distance.
