3rd visit to the doc. I can run two miles and bring it up from here. As long as I keep it slow until next wed. After many adjustments, workouts, stretches, cool laser treatments, x-rays and overall poking he is convinced that the nerve area is no longer a problem (at least not much of one). The remaining injury is the pectineus muscle and still adductor area. So far treatment has been good, but without pushing the miles or speed I am unsure of total progress.

 The cause? Always a mystery but during all the testing he was very surprised/impressed how strong my muscle areas were for having that much pain manifest itself in the quad area... until... my hamstrings. He told me my flexibility in my hamstrings were like a 90 year old man.  He asked me what I was doing to correct this... and well... hey are we suppose to stretch those?? He thinks this has thrown my running form off and bunch of other big terms causing the injury. For the past week I have been learning how to really stretch that area and wow am I tight there. This will be a daily stretching routine as I get my miles back. I am not bothered too much since I do not have have a focus race until fall. I wanted to set some June 5k/10k PR's , but that will have to wait. I just want to run without discomfort and then really push myself to my limits.

2 Miles, I figure if I have to watch my speed and slowly add miles I may as well do hills and the toughest short trail around me.
