OK, thanks again! I wish I could select both answers, but yours gave the great advice of doing hills.

comment Why don't my thighs hurt?
Thanks for the tips! You're right, I ran hills a couple of days ago, and my thighs definitely were more sore than usual. I am definitely not in marathon shape, though. Did you recommend two hours because a beginning marathoner runs it in 4 hours? In other words, does it scale linearly? I run about 90 minutes at a time now, so should I do 45 minutes of hill work? Thanks again!

@DaveNewton: Just checked, and the answer is yes, stabbing my leg resulted in intense pain. :) But when I said "thigh", I meant both front and back - I get no pain from my kneecap until my hip.

Well, of course, I don't necessarily yearn for the pain. I was more concerned that maybe I was running incorrectly, and putting too much stress on other areas of my leg. Really I was hoping for the type of answer that was like "yeah, this happens a lot, it's because blah".
