Hi, i have started to have femur pain after running, best way to describe it is a dull pain in my left leg, i think i first noticed the pain around week 6, i tried ignoring it and running through it, but it just got worse, so i decided to stop running until the pain went away.
I work as a postie so do lots of walking and never had any issues of pain, and i used to run in the past, probably 3 years have past since i used to run often and without any issue like this, so i have been very confused as to what is going on.
Anyway it took about 9 days until the pain stopped, so i carried on with the couch25k program, and rejoined in the final week 9, i ran 2 x 5k, one of them being the graduation run, after that the pain came back again, i tried to run again 2 days later at my first Parkrun, but the pain became too much and i had to walk, limp the rest of the way.
Again i waited until the pain stopped, this time i waited about 2 weeks, then i joined the follow on group, i felt good and ended up running about 9k, i could feel a tinny bit of pain during the run, the next day it was very sore again.
So another 2 weeks without running, then again after running about 10k the pain is back again, with all the walking i do everyday this is very annoying, as i would of thought my legs would be in good condition, i guess my next option is to go and see a Physiotherapist for diagnostic
