Yesterday I ran for 20 minutes non stop (w5r3). Very proud of myself! In six weeks I have progressed from being able to run 3 minutes to 20 minutes. Hoorah! But the second I stopped running, ow. The muscle at the very front and top of my right leg started to twinge. As the day went on, it got worse, until I could barely walk.
Now, I think it's a quadricep muscle (when you raise your leg, it's the muscle that bulges out right at the front of your leg in the join between your leg and pelvis). It's a deep and searing pain, and gets worse the more walking I do.
I just wondered if anyone else has experienced this; what it could be, how to treat it (I'm guessing ice and rest) and how to prevent it? I'm really bummed out as I feel like I have JUST started to make some serious progress and now I might be out of commission!
