Senid that's slightly unfair. I did say on again/off again runner and have had periods since 2008 of noit running for several monthsto years- I've even had a baby during that time. I've never had this problem before though.
Thanks for all the helpful advuce, it is much appreciated
I really really can't think of anything, my only regular medication is a nasal spray, but I've been on that for years , and symbicort (when I remember to take it). I have had a couple of colds recently and one turned iinto sinusitis which is why I had the two weeks off. I have had low calcium levels iin the past soi guess I should try and get that checked. Maybe a visit to the GP is in order.
I'll keep wracking my brains to see if I can think of anything else
Thank you for the more helpful posts. The pain is mainly in my thighs and glutes my calves are mostly ok._ I'm even having trouble walking todaythey atre sostiff and sore. I had nrew running shoes about two or three months ago, buti'll try my old ones for a few runs just in case the shoes could be the culprit.
I think I do need to build up strength in my legs, but doing that hurts too!. Peter Everitt the8k was before ii had the two week break andi had built up gradually to that, but I take the point that I could still be trying to do too much too soon.
So, I'll take the rest of the week off, do some leg strengthening exercises and cut back on the distance and speed when I restart and see how things go. Thank you
