Hey all, I've been running in the campus rec center 3 days a week, and only run about 2 miles per visit. My legs are constantlysore. it feels a sharper kind of pair than just achy over tired muscles.. if I would have to imagine, id guess like i had ripped muscle or something.. it is mid height on my calfs( i do have slight shin soreness too) I did just buy new running shoes last week, as my old ones were worn to pieces. Seemed to help cushion the impact of running, and helped a little bit. Does it sound like I'm not stretching correctly/enough? it does take 15 mins to walk to the track, so I do arrive warmed up. I have never been able to touch my feet.. I'm just not "naturally flexible" if there is such a thing.. and at times, i've worked at it but never made it very far. Maybe I need to work on this? Do you have a handful of goto stretches that will limber up everything? or am I barking up the wrong tree? I know somewhere there is a bodybuilding/workout forum, but I couldn't find it, and figured there wouldn't be many people there anyway.. what say all you marathon runners and pros?
