Firstly: Slow down.

Secondly: Stretching is only useful when muscles are warm. You have to work the muscles you are attempting to stretch, and in the leg area, that means leg muscles.

Thirdly: If it hurts, STOP. The body is dynamic, and things go right and wrong all the time. No need to worry, just give yourself some time.
