My official training program for this marathon began yesterday. This program assumes that you have been running 12-15 miles per week going into it. I found this program early enough and decided early enough that I wanted to do this, so I'm in pretty good shape for right now...until tonight.
Pretty simple 4 mile run was all it was supposed to be, until the front muscle in my left leg tightened up like nobody's business. I made it 2 miles then had to walk for a while. I finished the four miles in a lot of pain in my leg. So, if any runners out there have any advice on how to prevent this, I'd appreciate it.
