What do I do about quad pain in the last 6-7 miles of a marathon?
In each of the three marathons I have run, I've experienced pain in each quadriceps, beginning around mile 18. It gets so I need to take walk breaks periodically until the end of the race. Are these muscles pulling? And how can I prevent this from occurring in the future?
