it looks to me that you are little lack in salt and vitamins in body . You can not run with a weak body. I will suggest you take Methylcobal and carnisure tablet for one month. Also for cramping take salty lemonade full glass twice in a day. show to a sports medicine specialist if your symptoms increases.
