Pantorrilla

This is a discussion thread for the Daily Spanish Word for June 1, 2009

pantorrilla (feminine noun (la)) — calf (of the leg). Look up pantorrilla in the dictionary

Me corté en la pantorrilla y ahora me duele cuando camino.
I cut myself on my calf and now it hurts when I walk.

Aquí se suele nombrar el mar que cruzas:

Cruzó el Mediterráneo a nado.
Me duelen las pantorrillas tras cuzar todo el Atlántico nadando.
Cruzó a nado el Canal de la Mancha con los pies atados.

También se cruza a la otra orilla (de un río, lago, etc.), nadando o no.

Pregúntale a ese barquero si te puede cruzar a la otra orilla.

You can't use 'ejercitar'? I pulled that from wordreference.com. But I understand the correction, so I'll update my "Book of Bad Puns." Probably also change 'vacas' to 'toros'.

Ejercitas un músculo o varios:

Estoy ejercitando mis pantorrillas para nadar mejor.

As irmamar says, you can use ejercitar, but remember that ejercitar is transitive (requires a direct object) and hacer ejercicio is intransitive (does not take a direct object). To exercise is both transitive and intransitive.
