Unilateral leg soreness?

I've primarily been doing Metcons for the past six months and just got back to some CFE. When I run my right leg, specifically my thigh, gets worn out and tight out much more quickly than my left. Usually after only two miles I need to stop and stretch it out.

In the past I've had iliotibial band syndrome in both my knees. I've done quite a bit of mobility work to get past this. The pain is definetely different than the ITBS, more in the front aspect of my thigh than the side.

Re: Unilateral leg soreness?

see if someone can see if you have a leg length difference , ever had a tailor tell you that? how old are you, any problems in the hip on that side?

30 years old, No hip problems but I have had bilateral IT band problems. For work I carry a weapon on the right side. I recently changed holsters and that made a big difference in how my hip and thigh feel generally. Right now I don't have a good place to run outside, so I run on a treadmill, however this has happened in the past both on different surfaces (road, running path, trails, treadmill. I've been running since my early teens and have only had these problems in the past few years.

Re: Unilateral leg soreness?

Thoughts that come to mind would be quadriceps tendonitis, causing some weakness of the quad as it fatigues earlier than the other side, try to hold off on the impact things, do they have rowers for you guys or stationary bikes?

Definetely a possibility. The problem may be that I don't run enough. I've never really run more than a mile in about two years. I definetely need to get measured and do some mobility/rehab on my leg. I have been diagnosed with some periformis tightness previously.
