I am feeling the leg pains as well. Ice is helping and instead of walking and running 4 for 20 minutes I am doing 3 at 15 and then building up from there.

Maybe you should try going back to the old running shoes until your done with this 5K. New shoes seem to need a lot of break-in time and you don't need to deal with pain that comes with it.
Feel better : )

I have been experiencing horrible calf pain on both inner legs during my last two training sessions. I am hoping it is not shin splints as I don't have the ability to rest, the 5K is coming up. I did recently get new running shoes that are supposed to keep my knees in line, maybe that is causing it?
Any ideas?
