Running is one of the most affordable sports. Especially often runners can meet in the spring and early summer, when people start adjusting their figures before the beach season. However, many athletes Jogging, periodically through the pain in the legs. Especially often it is shown at the first training in adulthood.

The muscles of the legs while running can hurt for different reasons. This may be related to physiology, improper running technique, and ignorant approach to the training process.

Wrong approach to training process

A bad workout. Before the procedure is run it is necessary to warm-up, focusing on the knees and ankle. It is these parts of the body receive the greatest load. You can make a circular motion the feet and knees, light squats. This will help to prepare the joints for the long load. In addition, do not forget about the calf and thigh muscles that need warming up. You can resort to stretching or light gymnastic exercises.

A sharp pace from the beginning of the workout. It is not necessary to run fast. Even a good warm-up allows the body to quickly get into a rhythm. You need to "enter" into the run gradually, otherwise muscles of the legs become clogged and start to hurt the next day.

Excessive load. For runners, not practiced at least a couple of weeks, there is a danger of overtraining. This also applies to beginners. After a long and serious loads start to hurt not only the leg muscles but also back, neck, and even shoulders.

Bad hitch. Hitch is important to workout no less than the warm-up. It allows you to remove the body of lactic acid, to make it quicker to be included in the recovery process. Stretching exercises and hanging on the bar is perfect as a hitch. If not to the hitch, even the most experienced runner in danger of the next day Wake up with leg pain.

Physiological characteristics of the organism and other factors

Curvature of the spine. When curvature of the spine strain on the legs is given uneven. This affects both the left and right leg, as the muscles get too uneven load. For example, the calf can double the load, while hamstring is to rest.

Incorrect running technique, stiffness. At the "wrong" race, stiff person gets increased load on the legs. This leads to pain the next day.

Injury. This is the most serious signal that the training process has flaws. Injuries happen from overtraining, poor warm-up, excessive loads, lack of muscular tissue nourishment.

The mismatched shoes. Often runners do not pay attention to the shoes in which I run, but in vain. It depends on the quality the softness of the stop and the evenness of the load. There are times when too much laced sneaker in running six kilometres becomes the cause of severe pain in the calf and foot.

Foot pain can signal that the athlete is doing everything right. It is important to properly and carefully walk to the training process – conduct a warm-up and hitch, not to form load to set the right stop and pick shoes, not constricted in the process of running and rest the body. Then running will not cause any inconvenience, and will be a real helper in a person's life.
