like going once a week for six weeks? Your legs may just need more conditioning.
maybe try stretching after a few runs once your muscles are warm and then again at the end of the day.
You could also try adding some protein to your diet to help muscle regeneration.

You likely need to hydrate better and breath better when really pushing it. More o2 and fluids will likely take care of it.

Drinking something like chocolate milk after your last run will also help. The protein and sugar combined will help your muscles restore themselves.

To help remove the soreness, sit into a ice cold tub with your legs for as long time as you can manage, maybe 7-10 min. It helps a lot better than warm water on removing the aches.

Mine don't get too sore any more. They get a little achy after a big day but not if-you-touch-me-I'll-kill-you sore.

Sport Legs + compression is what I'll add to the other recommendations.

I have HUGE legs. Very very powerful. Almost freakish. Great for short burst of brute strength but hot damn does snowboarding and other endurance sports make me want to hack them off!! I try everything from training to protein, to stretching to, icey hot, to ice, to just flat out doing it more. Nothing helps hahaha. By spring it is a tiny bit better but its barely barely noticeable.
