Stiff legs?
I've just started a new exercising regimen (last 3wks) and I run for a few miles on a treadmill. I stretch out my legs properly before I go for a jog but within a few min the lower part of my lower calf area gets extremely stiff. Its get quiet painful for me to continue. I'm wearing good comfortable cross trainers and my feet are not sore. The stiff/soreness seems to be coming from mid way up the lower leg just behind the shin bone (not the shin itself) and the longer I run (1min+) the stiffer/larger the area gets till the entire lower leg (knee to ankle) is stiff and sore (~3min, on both legs but more so on the right leg). Not sure what is causing this, ice does not seem to help but usually after 12 hours the stiffness goes away and 24 for most of the pain. But within less than 1min now my legs stiffen when I try to run.  I would like to keep running, any ideas to keep me on my feet?

Those are stretches.  

Also try massages.  It has been proven that massages help you heal.
