ABI ran in the Seville marathon last Sunday. By the time I got to seven miles I was getting sharp pains in my left quads. This got worse and I had to pull out at 10 miles. I had no issues in training, I tried to stretch it out at the time but was of no use. This would have been my 28th marathon, so I am used to the distance and this has never happened before. I have thought about tight muscles, but I have a sports massage every couple of weeks, the last being the Tuesday before Seville. Seville has a lot of cambers on the route, but I wouldn't have thought it would have been the problem after seven miles! Has this happened to anyone else? Any other suggestions as to the cause? I have filed it under 'shit happens' however......
