Subject: RE: loss of coordination in leg
Amazing so many people have this same problem - I thought I was the only one. No pain, just can't run long on the road or in a race on the road beyond 5k without my leg cramping up. It is very frustrating to have to stop, stretch and walk in the middle of a race without being tired. The advice I've received which all makes some sense:
1. Stretch hips, hamstrings and lower back, my guess is most people with this problem are relatively inflexible.
2. Strengthen muscles right above the knee and correct any muscle imbalances - you might need a PT to tell you how if there are imbalances.
3. Stay hydrated - I don't think it's this because this problem only happens on the roads, but it can't hurt to stay hydrated to prevent cramping.
4. Try new shoes or orthotics - perhaps incorrect shoes are not giving proper support which causes problems farther up the leg.
