Has anyone had the same problem I seem to be having. Recently started to run home from work with a nice new Asics back pack. The pack is very comfy and doesn't feel particularly heavy but since doing this my right leg has been giving me a real pain!! The calf seems tight and I have pain over my foot. Just wondering if it could be something to do with the back pack throwing me into a different running position as when I run without it, no problem and the leg doesn't hurt so much. Anyone else had similar problems?
You need to try the packs on for fit - like shoes. Keep them as light as possible. I just leave shoes in work - and toiletries and stuff. And if you wear 2 or more tops - they rub on each other rather than you.
I'd go easy on the water too - no real need for lots of it in the british autumn.
