    By walking after each run.

    What you have is not lactic acid..that builds up on runs of 10 miles or more.

    Get a vest and do some water running. You are probably running on a hard surface....do you have good shoes?

    Making sure you're not dehydrated should help a little. For calves, pull your toes toward you- flex them toward your knees until you feel a stretch up your calf.
