    A few times after uni, walking to my bus stop which is 15 mins away my calves start tightening up, it never happerns walking downhill or flat ground and always after a lecture or sitting down for a while
    I eat quite a healthy diet, lots of milk and protein and I strech my calves at night but they still tighten up walking up uphill
    Any advice?

    Do some stretches before you leave maybe, I get this whilst jogging, especially uphill. There's probably a scientific reason for it but.. :dontknow:

    That's what I was thinking and I don't know, somewhere not in public I guess. Also think about what type of shoes you're wearing. Might not be completely relevant but I found that wearing trainers helps my feet vs something like sneakers. The ones I use were like £13 or something (originally £80 but it was sports direct so...) and are really comfortable so I swap between them and work shoes to and from work. Not really something you see uni students do though to be fair.
