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.
