Why on earth would only my left leg hurt while running? (I swear I’m using both of them to run!) The pain is in my calf, my shin and also radiates up the back of my thigh (hamstring?). I have two pairs of running shoes and have tried switching them out. I stretch before and after I run. I also have to ice the leg and take ibuprofen after I run. It just seems strange to me that only one leg is affected. Any advice?
I know my first thoughts (gait? shoes? muscle imbalance?) but we all know Im more weights than running.
Any of you die-hard runner types have thoughts to spare?

Edited to say it has been crazyhectic around here.
Somehow the fact I was uber-delayed getting home on Monday from TypeAMom threw my entire week off.
I was remiss. This blogger, whom I adore, was not.
