Arrow My calves have become unbearable..

i jog about a mile or 2 uphill every day.
it took me a while to be able to do the whole thing without stopping, but i've gotten to the point where i can do it.
the thing is tho, after jogging my calves become inflamed.. i find myself collapsing afterwards and barely being able to walk.
i kno, "no pain, no gain", but my calves are the only parts of my body that are that painful after i run.
i have thick muscular calves so i dunno if that's part of the problem, but the pain is unbearable at times.
should i stop running every day for a while or what?
i usually ice down my calves right after i'm done, but only for about 20mins.

it's hard for me not to run.. even if i'm in pain i want to run so bad.. it's a release.

it sounds like lactic acid, if you keep doing it, it will go away.

Do you run on your tip toes?... I used to have a calf problem because I was a sprinter and all the running I did was on the ball of the foot which got me used to doing longer distance runs without putting my heels down alot and it all lead to burning in my calfs, sounds alot like what you have.

yea i find myself running on my tiptoes a lot.. i try to catch myself and run flatter, but it's just instinctual.
next time i'll make a point of running flatter.. i was doing some research and that might be the problem.

lol u wuss do u not normally run then? if u cant deal with the pain then dont play the game lol.
I normally run 6 miles and i got up 6 hills 1 hill being 1 mile long and im use to it so i dont find it hard i think the trick is to use different running techiques e.g. on your toes,flat footed,heels to ur ass,knees up and side to side etc.. so that ur whole leg gets a work out instead of one part and it can give some of ur muscles a break by using different techiques.
Or u cud always jus not run like juan diaz and jus swim lol

you stretch a lot before you run?

my trainer has been making me run anywhere between 3 - 6 miles before working out the past 2 months. it's not bad on a track, but i went to my parents house for a week. wow. running hills is a totally different kind of work out.
