leg pain and running
well Im having a bit of a problem and was hoping to get some advice. I started running and jogging about 7 or 8 weeks ago, also quit smoking so trying to get the lungs back. so after about a month I worked up to where I was running 5-6 days per week, monday wednesday friday would do about 4 mi in the morning and run a mile as fast as possible in the after noon. tues thurs and sundays I would go 3 to 4 miles.
a few weeks ago I started noticing a little pain in my lower legs, especially right after finishing a run, and it progressed until one day I had to stop in the middle of a run due to the discomfort.
the thing that confuses me is that they dont hurt while sprinting and even doing the mile, only when I slow my pace and jog over longer distance. also there is a little discomfort while skipping.
I have taken a week off and rested up and really want to get back into the swing of things but I dont want to hurt myself. any and all comments will help
