Default Running and Calf/Shin Aches

I stretch before running. When I first start running the fronts of my calves (I suppose that would be the shin area) aches. After I warm up, they are fine. After I get more tired, they ache again. What do you suppose the deal is? They do not hurt at any other time. What are the proper stretches to do for this front calf/shin area...maybe I am not doing them right or not enough. Thanks for your input.

It's called shin splints. Mine were doing the same thing and I talked to my trainer and orthopedist about it. They said that the only thing I can do is stretch ALOT. I started spending about 15 min just stretching. I encorporated some yoga moves into the stretching and that seemed to help. If you type in shin splints into a search engine it can give you a whole bunch of different stretches to do. If after a week of stretching a little extra it is still bothering you I would suggest seeing your doc because there may be an underlying problem causing the pain.

you have to try and build up the mucles that support your shins, ankles and calves.
