I'm a newbie on week one and am suffering really badly with pain at the front of my thighs. I did the first run on Monday and it's taken me until today to be able to face the second run and I can feel that my legs are seizing up again already.
The stamina bit isn't too bad...I have been doing quite a lot of walking recently so my fitness has improved compared to what it was, but with running I'm obviously discovering muscles I've not used in years!
I warmed up before and after just as Sarah Millican told me....but I'm wondering if this is the norm and it will improve as I progress - or if there's something else I should be doing?
I don't want to give up as I think this is something I will enjoy but obviously don't want to be in agony every time I get out of a chair or walk down stairs. I'm bracing myself each time I need to get off the loo!!
I'm still overweight by a couple of stone having lost a stone and a half recently and am wondering if at 58 last week I've left it a bit late to start running!??
