Thanks for writing in. Pain in the calf muscles while jogging can be due to excess workout, inadequate blood supply to the calf muscles, dehydration, inadequate stretching before starting exercises.
I would suggest that you should reduce activity or modify activity by opting for some other form of exercise, maintaining hydration, relaxation and consult a trainer in this regard.
Inspite of all these changes if pain does not subside then you need to see a doctor to rule out any vascular abnormalities.
