I agree with suggestion of seeing sports dr or massage therapist and the shoes. Shoes are so important. I had my gait analysed at one store and bought shoes and went to another location next time. Came out with same shoes each time. Once you know which shoes then you can go to outlet stores or online to find the same models cheaper. I don't use. The Stick but rather a weight to rub up and down the leg. Also take a week and give it up. Just relax, go for walks, give your muscles a good rest. Looking at what you have lost and what you have left to lose, you have done fantastic. Before Christmas I was really having trouble keeping up in my cardio classes (I am one of those people who always has to run faster, jump higher, squat lower). I ended up now being able to do the classes for a couple of weeks and went back yesterday and had a great class! Every so often we need to cut ourselves some slack

One thing to keep in mind is that the location of the pain isn't always the source of the pain. My knees and lower back hurt until I went to a running store and had them fit me for shoes. My current ones roll my ankle out a little because my natural stride rolled them in. Once I started running in those the pain went away quickly. Since your pain is so intense and prolonged I would suggest seeing a sports doctor. They will be the only ones who can properly diagnose to source of the problem and make recommendations to correct it. Good luck!

With you on my team and me on yours we are bound to succeed!

I drink 4 glasses( 8oz) of water in the morning before my workout on the treadmill. I also eat something. I stretch after every workout as well. I usually do a sparkpeople cardio video to get me warmed up and stretch before my workout. I do have a bad back ( 2 rod's and 8 screw's). I was doing all my treadmill workout's on a incline( higher calorie burn) and was wondering if that might be my problem. So I put it all the way down. Man does the cheeks of my butt hurt, and my thigh's right where the butt and thigh's meet. Do you think maybe the pain is from my back or the workout. ( I have not been doing any squats) Maybe I'll try that foam roller. Something has to help!!!

Thank you MIRAGE727!!

You probably know about lactic acid after a run. It builds up in your muscles during a work out and will increase soreness. As your muscles get more toned, the lesser acid and lesser pain. I use "The Stick" (google it) to rub out that acid in my muscles. You can also use a foam roller. (You can buy them in Walmart.) I also insure I'm properly hydrated, before, during, and after my run..

I've also spoken with advanced runners on stretching recently at my latest Half Marathon. They will do a brief warm up of 5 to 10 minutes.(essential)THEN do a light stretch accenting on the legs. They will repeat that normal routine after their run.Insure that 64 oz a day!

Any concerns or iff the pain increases too much, I always see a sports therapist or doctor for consultation. IMHO, working through the pain is one thing but don't risk permanent damage. We all want to race another day!

I've been working out on my treadmill for a year and half. I do some of the sparkpeople exercise video's as well, But the back of my thigh's, butt and back hurt. I've lost about 79 pounds in that time as well. I try to do something different everyday. HIIT's one day, walking the next, and then jogging the next day. I do 60 minutes a day. I cool down and stretch after every workout. I also take 1 to 2 day's off a week, but nothing helps. It's getting harder and harder to continue. Oh yea.. I was wearing a pair of Nike shocks and have now been wearing some Brooks running shoe's.

Any suggestion are welcome....
