I've been running now for about 6 months now and joined a running club about 4 weeks ago which has helped massively. I have done quite a few 6 mile runs and have just recently done a couple of longer runs.
I run about 20 miles a week which is a mix of a 6 mile club run, a 6 mile run on my own and a longer run on saturday.
I did my first 12.5 mile run a couple of weeks ago and found that I had quite bad hip and upper leg pain along with the normal calf muscle pain about 9 miles into the run.
It went away after a day or so and then carried on with my normal club runs etc..
I then did another 13.5 mile run on Friday. My upper leg, hip and calf muscle pain came back again after about 12 miles into the run but nothing before. It really tightened up to the point I had to stop.
Again the pain has gone again with just a little calf muscle pain left.
I would appreciate any advise anyone could give me as to what could be causing this and what I can do to get rid of it.
I stretch before any run so I am at a miss.
