Any suggestions from the more experienced among you regarding calf pain? I am on week 4 session 2 and experiences tightness (is that a word?!) in the right calf. I got it a couple of weeks ago and seeing as I was loving the running i got my gait analysed and some new trainers in case it was the shoes doing it. It is still tense and also I am getting a bit of pain in my right leg at the top at the back now too. I am new to running, am nearly 36, not really overweight (OK maybe just a few pounds by my own judgement) and am stretching and warming up.
Could I do anything to help? Will it improve now I have new shoes? I have only run twice in the new shoes and it was better yesterday even after a tough run!
