thanks for the advice. I'll rest it and see how it goes. I've suffered from ITB problems before but that was a pain at the side of the knee. I guess maybe its a bit tight or something so I'll give that stretch a go, thanks Cal.
day after a long run (for me) of 8 miles I felt a sharpish pain on the outside of my left thigh, about half way between knee and hip. I've run a few times since and its got a bit worse. I now have an aching pain on inner thigh near groin too (same leg). Any thoughts on what the problem could be and how I could get rid ?
Thanks all for the help. The hydration tablets really work! No more calf cramps. Also I find that now its winter I don't really need them and I don't get the calf cramps, so it looks like the cause of my calf cramps is definitely a result of sweating away all the important minerals.
