Stiffness of shin, calf

While running / jogging shin and calf gets stiffed and sometimes had to stop, take rest and run again. How to get rid of this ? At least at a stretch I want to run 4/5 kms but due to stiffness I can do for 2-3 kms. What should I do to make these elements more flexible?

Hello there. I can understand your concern. Its a good thing to run every alternate day to maintain good health. But you need to take things slow. You need to gradually increase the intensity up a notch. Do some stretching excercises everyday and also before starting the run. Start the run by a brisk walk and then a jog and then break into the run. Take a multivitamin and multimineral supplement like cap. Absolut 3g once a day after food for 15 -20 days. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
