Hmmm. To tell you the truth, I don’t know what the right answer for you is. I can only relate my own experiences and point you to those of others.

1. Perhaps you are stretching too much or too hard. Try to run without stretching. I rarely stretch and hardly ever feel the pain that you’ve described. Other runners/joggler might disagree but it works for me.

2. Maybe you need some time off. Last year when I had a case of Achilles Tendonitis, I took a 3 week break from running and spent time doing things like bike riding, volleyball, and table tennis. The extra rest seemed to help.

3. Take a painkiller after your workout. I do this on occasion and it seems to work. Running is painful for most anyone at one time or another. Especially if you are trianing hard.

It sounds like it will take you some time to get back to where you were. If it were me, I would take a few weeks off from running and then start up training with a short run (1 mile) with a fast walk before and after. When it hurts, go back to walking. Soon you’ll learn to accept the pain.

Running can hurt. But it’ll stop hurting when you do it enough.

DO NOT OVER STRETCH IT WILL KILL U IN THE NEXT COUPLE HOURS STRETCH AS FAR AS U CAN GO BUT NOT TO FAR AND TRAIN TO YOUR OWN ABILTY BUT DONT FORGET TO WORK HARD

Don’t ever stretch before you run. You don’t stretch a cold muscle because you will injure yourself. Only stretch after a run or after 10 minutes of running when your muscles are warmed up.

Stretch or don’t stretch. It really depends on what feels good for you. The jury is out as to whether stretching is useful or not. I think you have to figure out for yourself. Some people find that stretching before a run helps. I never have and I don’t stretch much at all. It hasn’t seemed to hurt me too much.

jog ten stretch then work out. Stretch after then every once in a while throughout the day if you start to feel stiff. I just did all this on an I phone while pooping

Hello, I play softball once a week and my legs KILL after running the bases. They can be sore for two weeks straight and one time I reinjured them an could barely walk for a few days. Any suggestions?

Jog about 10 minutes beforehand and then stretch before playing. This should help a little.
