I used to do a lot of biking + weight training. 2 weeks ago I saw my girlfriend in her first marathon ever and I decided I wanted to do the 10k (train for real not just participate).
I used to play football in high school and after every drills my leg use to hurt like hell. I'm following a 10k training (6 days a week) it's nothing really heavy, 30 min or 3.5-4 miles worst case scenario.
Now it's back and worst. I run for 10 min and the minute I have trouble walking. I have to sit down for a couple of minutes. I tried all the kind of shoes. Nike shocks to really cheap shoes. At the moment I run with Saucony Hattori minimalist shoes. I even tried the five fingers same result.
I don't have any family doctor but I have insurance. Do you think I should go the private clinic to talk to somebody? What could they do except giving me painkiller and suggest to change shoes?
It's in both legs now... can't even run for a mile
