So I’ve begun training my 3 mile run for my PFT the last few weeks. Pretty often (about every other run,) my lower back/upper glute area gets a rediculous pump at about 1 miles and starts cramping for real at about 2-2.5 miles.
Anyone else have this problem and/or a possible solution? I train 4 days/wk on a modified Westside template. Thinking of switching to just 3 to help recovery. I’m not very big, currently ~6’1 @ 230, so I wouldn’t figure this should be a problem for me…Any suggestions?
