Calves-suggestions please :(

I completed wk5 run3 this morning and although by lungs coped my calves burned from start to finish of the 20 minute run, yet they didnt on the warm up/down. Does anyone have any suggestions? This has only occured on wk5 run 2 and 3. I have had gait analysis and have worn my trainers for each run and had no aches any other time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

look up calf raises and dips - since i've started doing those before and after runs they've really helped reduce aching. You should be able to find a proper descriptiion of them and photos on either a running website or youtube.
