comment Stiffness in the calf after running?
you don't give your age, but you do suggest that you are out of shape. The fact that you your calf is swollen and you "have the feeling that it's gonna break," is significant enough to check it out with the doctor. Once you get a diagnosis, you can get more info from your doctor as to how to proceed. And you can get some alternative exercise suggestions.

comment What can I do to gain weight?
@Andreas, the BMI is clearly not intended for professional athletes due to their musculature. BMI calculators generally specify that it is not accurate for muscular people or people with muscle wasting. It is a screening/ assessment tool used for the general population that is cheaper and easier and thus more readily available than providing large populations (not professional athletes) with caliper, DEXA or underwater weighing. If you put too much importance on the BMI, or rely on it ultimately then I agree that it is not useful. But used as intended it can be the first step in screening.

comment Is its safe to stop between intervals on the treadmill?
I don't know of a specific indicator other than monitoring your heart rate. I think most interval training regimes recommend some active form of recovery. I edited my answer to provide a reference to other studies reporting that active rests are superior to passive rests.

comment Are you prone to injury directly after weight lifting?
Are you describing back pain or just muscle pain in general? I ask because the 2 examples you give involve bending and/or twisting.
