Feet and calf pain?

I'm new to boarding, linked turns are going well, generally enjoying it a lot. However, when I ride longer runs (especially catwalks and offcamber runs where I spent a lot of time toeside) my feet and calves burn so bad I have to stop after a few minutes. It's not cramping, but more of a burning sensation. I've tightened my boots and bindings pretty snug to eliminate heel movement, but not so tight they cut off circulation.
My questions are, 1) am I using too much effort in my toeside turns or edge holds, 2) how tight should boots/bindings be and 3) is this part of the normal learning progression? Thanks in advance!
