As some of you know, I've signed up for a 5K that's happening in September. I've been training for it and I'm nowhere close to running the entire thing, but I'm working my way up.
Anyway, I've been having an issue with my leg. I always stretch before and after my runs, but everytime I run my left leg hurts for the rest of the day. Not just a little ache either, like hurting so that ordinary pain relievers aren't helping. I put icy hot on it, I take a few ibprofen, but unless I take something really strong (as in a percocet) it hurts. It's an area behind my knee, not in my knee, but on the back of my leg right above my kneecap to a little bit below. I thought maybe it was hamstring, but it seems a bit low. Any ideas on what it could be? Or what could help it? It never hurts the day after I run and it's always the same leg that hurts, my right leg never hurts after a run.
Also, I want some super cute pants to run in and our craptastic PX never has what I want.
I want something like this:
