    I don't really work out, I would run or bike occasionally, but nothing hardcore.

    Saturday I ran a 5k, then Sunday I biked 12 miles, and I'm having pain from my sciatic nerve (sometimes I feel the pain shooting down the back of my right thigh).

    Today I'm supposed to "run stadiums" with a group of people (running up the stadium's stands and such), and I'd really like to not wuss out if possible.

    How can I relieve this pain? What am I doing to cause it, or what am I doing wrong?

    what i like to do is just lay down and place the tennis ball where it hurts and just lay there for like a minute.
