I finished the c25k program about 6 weeks ago on my treadmill. Shortly after that the first couple of 5ks were no problem at all, however after the third 5k I got a pain in my inner thigh in my left leg after finishing the run.
I do full body stretches before and after running with an emphasis on lower body stretches.
I gave it just over two weeks (up to yesterday) before I ran again. Prior to yesterday's run the inner thigh pain had gone.
About 3/4 of a mile into yesterday's run I could feel the inner thigh pain again in my left leg. I stopped after a mile and did some stretches.
Today it's still pretty painful when I lift my left leg up (the same motion as walking up stairs). My right leg is absolutely fine.
Voltarol gel doesn't seem to do anything for the pain.
Has anyone else encountered this? I was hoping that a couple of weeks rest would help but it doesn't seem to have helped at all.
