Medically speaking...look up claudication or intermittent claudication. It's a vascular disease (common in smokers/diabetics). Basically the blood vessels in your legs aren't capable of supplying your calf muscles with enough blood and oxygen while working out, hence you get pain. When you stop, the need for oxygen to the muscles goes down, and the pain stops...... but the duration of pain can vary post exercise.

Or could just be lactic acid buildup.
