I completed C25K in June after 9 weeks of injury free running. Since then I've been doing regular 5K runs. Until recently.......
About two months ago my doc put me on statins to lower my cholesterol. Coincidentally this is about the time when I started to get lots of injuries / sore legs / muscles. I couldn't understand it. How could someone who hadn't run since school, successfully complete the C25K program without any pains or soreness (apart from the obvious newly stiff muscles of course) and now suddenly become permanently in pain?
Now I can barely get up from my desk without limping. I've had groin strains and now my latest injury (what I believe are shin splints) have left me quite despondant. I'm convinced it's these bloody statins causing me all this grief.
Anyone else had this problem connected with these pills? I'm speaking to my GP later and gonna ask him, but I'd love to hear from others who may have had similar probs.
As Fraisier said "Thanks for listening".
