Looking for advice from fellow Couch to 5K runners/graduates.
I'm a 48 year old female who has completed week 7 and first run from week 8. I have however had to give my legs a rest this week as I'm really struggling with groin and knee pain and well, just leg pain altogether!
During my last 3 runs, I've suffered from a burning sensation that's started in my right thigh and worked itself down to my foot. Only on one leg. This has meant I have had to stop mid run and stretch my leg then walk a short way. I so hope this is a temporary injury and wondered if anyone has suffered similar problems, rested and then carried on running? I've totally got the running bug and so want to continue but also don't want to do any long term damage.
Any advice appreciated.
