Started running (from nothing) 6 months ago after a rush of blood to my head made me enter the Silverstone 1/2, and have followed my training plan religiously - and comfortably run 10.5 miles yesterday. However I have noticed after increasing my mileage over 6miles I suffer terribly for 2 days (at least) after I run with really painful and tight hip flexors - it hurts to lift my legs into/out of the car, up/down stairs.
Fortunately I am never in pain while running, so I'm confused as to whether I've pulled something, or if its just my body not being used to running these longer distances.
Any suggestions/ hints and tips welcome
