It seems like whenever i run, i always get stiff and tender calf muscles afterwards, I always stretch before and after running. But the next day they just hurt like hell and i can't run for atleast 2-3 days, anyone know what its all about?

Well I don't know but I suggest you might see a physio.

I never get stiff calf's after I run. But a few hours later they ache, but I just associate this like with my all my other exercises. Once you have worked out they are *text deleted* ache/be stiff.

Go see a physio. I had same symptoms first thing he said was:

YOU HAVE LOWER BACK PROBLEMS.

All to do with a nerve messing with your leg, the calf is still damaged more than likely but what caused it was the nerve being pinched and not allowing it to relax properly.

All speculation though mind you, so go check with a physio, it's fun too... I had some electric pads on my ass, felt rather nice.

*edit

Mine was caused by missing one stretch out of routine *text deleted* -.-
