    When I go running, the first thing that makes me want to stop is this burning sensation in my calves. It gets so bad sometimes that I cant go on. It comes before my out of breath/tired feeling. I take the time to stretch before running...Anyway to prevent this? :noes:

    Could be your form. Make sure your feet are hitting evenly.

    is it on the back of your calves or on the inner part of your calves/legs...if its on the inner part then its pretty much where shin splints start to occur. It will move onwards till it gets towards the front of your shin- however it shouldn't be burning, more of a pain than a burn :dunno:


    Do toe raises for them.
