Everytime I go for a run my calves are killing the next day, I have new runners which have been broke in so I can't figure out why. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

I can understand the new shoes as you have to bed them in but it is still happening months down the line. If you find a solution will you let me know please dailytop10. Thanks for your comment.
I have seen other runners with them and never really knew why, sort of thought they were for keeping heat in..... shows you how much I know.
Anthony - These special socks are woven by computerized technology, they actually massage your feet/legs with each step you take.
Kind of a cool concept.
I am going to give that a go jeffduff, I do sweat a lot when exercising so you might have hit the nail on the head. Thanks very much.
It does fell like the sort of muscle tightness you would get if you just started back after a couple of weeks out but this seems to happen all the time after running and it takes a few days to disappear, Thanks for your answer number2son.
How long have you been running this distance?
Realistically this is my fifth time running it and about a week and half in between runs.
That explains it. Your body is still not used to that distance, and with how long in between each time, it will probably take longer for your body to get used to it, than if you did it more often.
