  • When this happens to me, I drink a TON of water as fast as I can get it in my system. It usually means dehydration and a kidney infection. Try to drink an 8oz glass of water and hour before your run and drink an 8oz right after your run and see if that helps.
    And make sure and sip on water constantly all day. Especially now with the crazy hot weather. :)

    If it gets worse go see your doc though. It usually eliminates the pain if I drink a lot of water though.

  • You are putting way too much strain on your kidneys. You must drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water a day; add one glass for every soda or caffienated beverage.
