your guts bounce up and down significantly more on the road than on a machine, takes time to build up the internal muscle to keep them in place.

If that sharp pain goes after a while it should be nothing to worry about. If it stays then you should see a doctor.

Thanks for that HW. always wondered why I used to feel iffy after a run.



Got a good route set up now with some nice climbs.

Does everyone protonate somewhat? I have noticed that as I get tired my form deteriorates and i start to protonate more, or maybe its just my muscles that are tiring.

IN BRIEF: To add a stable particle with positive charge (equal to the negative charge of an electron) to.

confusing.

i suffered from over pronation (just on my left leg) the image to the left is my left foot landing in normal trainers, and the one to the right is the same leg but with trainers that compensate for this with harder cushioning to counteract the problem)

I over pronate slightly, went to a really good running shop near me and got fitted out for a new pair. Wasn't as advanced as what you did stoney, but they recommend i go for some kind of structural support on the inside of my heel.

They suggested a pair of sauconys, however i found them quite uncomfortable, but i've found a pair of nikes that are more comfortable and have more density on the inside heel.

Half way through my run tonight I got a pain on the top and side of my leg, where the hip ends and my bum starts. Felt like a bit of a combination of pins and needles and numbness, then the pain went all the way down my leg to my ankle. Had a bit of a twinge in the same place yesterday but it went after a short while, but tonight it didn't. I caried on running but it slowed me down a lot. Still feels warm and numb at the top of my leg now

Had this pain occasionally when playing football too

Wondered if anybody had an idea what it might be? I'm doing about 3 miles per run, on the road, and running 3 or 4 times a week. I'm wearing New Balance 735. I know they're just cheap runners but didn't think I needed anything more expensive for the short runs I do

Do you get the pain when you kick a ball with that leg?

Not felt in when playing football for a while (season's only just started) but pretty sure it doesn't hurt when I actually kick the ball but feels a bit like I've not got control over my leg, which is why I said it's a bit like pins and needles. You know if you've been sitting/sleeping funny and you get up and you've got pins in needles in your foot and it you can't walk on it properly cos you can't feel it?

Sounds different from my injury as I had a pain whenever I put pressure on my leg and kicking a ball with it. Ice pack always helps if there is a tear of some sort.

I was thinking maybe it was a trapped nerve?

Trapped nerve is more a burning sensation than pins and needles in my experience

For this 10 mile race/run I doing in October, how far should I comfortably be able to do prior to the event? I feel pretty fit now and am running towards that distance about once a week with other shorter distances when I can.

Basically I want to do a decent time and be able to Usain Bolt sprint the last 50m metres and beat my running partner.

That sounds more like a trapped nerve then. Ice pack isn't what you need but a hot water bottle wrapped in a tea towelwhere the pain is, as the heat helps blood flow through the trapped nerve.

From your symptoms it could be sciatica…go to your GP.
