Could You Please Remove That War Hammer From My Thighs?

I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong but clearly there must be something. The most recent malady (in a growing list) to develop as I continue this journey towards the marathon is that my quads hurt almost the minute I start to run. I’m not talking about some mild discomfort. I’m talking ‘battle axe to the legs’ discomfort. I’m not sure if it’s related, but my knees have also begun to ache. Today was the first day I ever had to walk during a run to give myself a bit of relief.  Not a fan of this new development. Not at all.


Anyone out there ever come across this?  Have you found a cure?
