I make sure that I do a good warm up with some slight stretching and then do my cardio with a cool down and more stretching.

Good luck

I go to the gym and we strech before doing any cardio and then we build up before jumping rope. emoticon

I've had a problem with this in the past and stretching is the biggest part of it. Even walking can increase pain in tight calves if you aren't stretching. I found that stretching from the low back, hamstrings, and then down into the calves was a big help! Also, make sure your shoes aren't broken down, as that lack of support in old shoes can exacerbate pain in your calves. Hope you feel better soon!

I agree try walking and then do a light stretch, you might find that it works. That's what I do when I over train my calves. Good luck and you get better soon.

Try doing lower impac cardio. Jump rope is considered higher intensity. If you are not use to it, go with lower intensity and stretch. However, if you stop exercising because you are in pain, when you start up again, the pain will start up too.

That is why it is best to go with a lower intensity workout first. Once you get really used to that, step it up a notch.

RELLIMTENAJ has given you a lot of advice, and I agree with her. Maybe you tried to do too much. (That happens to me) I would take one or two days off until you feel completely well. Good luck! emoticon

That's three votes for walking. I'd lay off the incline though...

Low impact definitely - and that's right! Walking is the best choice.
Hope you feel better soon!

WALK!

You also need to stretch those calves! Stretch before, during and after. Ice them to bring down inflamation in the muscles. Take ibuprofen for the aches, look into Amino Vital to help rebuild the muscles your have over used. Finally, mix it up and give yourself a rest every now and then.

Maybe take a day's break on cardio and do upper body and abs.
