Yay, I got out in the lovely weather today and did my first run of week 4. I felt really good and managed to do an extra 3 min at the end, before cooling down. Feel really proud of myself and I continue to look forward to improving fitness levels further.
But the last time I ran, and even more so today, the first few minutes of the run, I have had really sore heels and a little in the knee area. It feels like I'm slamming my heels down too hard, but I think I'm more of a mid foot runner, and have new shoes to support that. After a few minutes, they feel fine, and don't bug me for rest of the run, but have to admit to feeling a bit sore now. I do cool down and stretch out.
Any ideas of what this is? Am I more of a heel runner than I thought, and therefore need to check my shoes, am I not warming up enough (I do the 5 minutes quite briskly), is this usual?
Thanks in advance
