OK so i'm a bloke therfore it's bound to be nothing....so my wife says! Anyhoo, whilst running a few weeks ago, a kind gentleman ran me off the road due to his excessive speed on the single track road I was using. (not hit just had to avoid his chavmobile!!)since then I've had a sore leg and it seems to change the point of pain. I drive a bit at work and it's ok till I try to get out of the vehicle then......ohmyfkingod it hurts!!! The pain is mainly at the back of the left thigh, I guessed hamstring damage. When I stand up after getting out of the van,I cannot walk for about 2-3 mins with a greater pace length than 6inches! once I'm moving it "frees" up and I continue ok. The problem is that my job basicaly means i'm driving for 30mins to an hour then crouching,bending,lying on the ground and reaching over low machinery. repeat for +45 hours a week and ...it's not fun. ..if I lie on the floor and lift my left leg, it feels as if the leg and the flesh is painfull under it's own weight. An experienced footie guy at work rekons it might be a trapped nerve or even siatica (spelling?). I may have a TA selection weekend at the end of june (allowing for family/work/ health/recruits allowing) and my training has gone to sh*t...even put on weight. PLEASE can anyone give me an idea about the pain?...dont want it on my med record in case....... Since I moved house 8 months ago my running has suffered due to lack of suitable roads, (out in the sticks/no lights/poor surface conditions/etc etc) and was putting a focus on my speed and time but it now seems to be destined for a change of date.
