I consistently have a left hamstring soreness, upon which stretching makes go away temporarily, every time I deadlift. I'd describe it as "that feeling that I need to stretch more," but that's not fixing it. I only feel it on deadlifts/straight DLs. A little bit on squats (I think I have a tendency to use more of my right side than left, so it might be a compensation issue).
Perhaps some one can identify why I have that, kind of minor, but specific pain every deadlift.
I just recently started getting pain in my calves after running. I've never gotten this pain before, but it hurts like hell after I get back from a run.
Could this just mean that I need new running shoes or is this something else?
You sure it's the calves themselves and not the achilles? Because you probably got tendinitis. Rest up until it completely heals, and if you have to run on hard surfaces (sidewalk as you said), buy shoes with better padding.
Any recommendations on how to overcome general soreness after doing a lengthy walk or bike ride (as in 3km walk, 10km ride?) Kinda hard to motivate oneself to repeat the dose when feeling like shit. Perhaps a mug of concrete to harden up, or are there any stretches or cool downs that I can use to assist?
