Re: 15 with rls?
Because of the proximity the jittery legs is so close to the start of you cross county training, I would start with that.
My son is also a high school cross county team member, and I know the first weeks are filled with sore muscles and jittery legs.
I also have severe RLS, and one of it's main features is how it hits hardest at bedtime, and it starts off slowly, and takes some time to detect for most of us.
My advice would be to keep your legs as comfortable as possible after practice, ice and heat alternating every 15 minutes, rub downs and hot showers. Product to sooth sore muscles are also helpful.
If these things don't help, and the problem persists, I would have your doctor have a look. I would give it a month to get used to the running.
