My calf muscles remain stiff several hours after jogging - reasons?


I've been doing the C25K running program so I am quite new to running. At first, I thought the stiffness in my calves would kind of go away as I built up strength, but I notice sometimes my calf muscles are stiff well into the following day. I warm up before doing any kind of running, and I do some yoga stretches at night, so I am not sure if the stiffness is due to running itself? Could I be needing different running shoes? (I run more on the front of my foot than a heel strike) Not sure what I'm doing wrong - any advice? I want to stick it out and do the full 5k sometime this summer.
