Dear All! Help!
As a slightly heavier than before - had a baby a year ago - runner - I've started doing c25k after previously completing it but have had to take a weeks break due to a horrid chest cold.
I last ran on Tuesday last week and at that point I had no aches or pains.
Yesterday at work the insides of both knees (as in to the inside of each leg rather than behind the knee cap) felt quite sore and this seems to be worse today!? Can this be as result of the running?? It seems a very delayed response but I can't think of anything else that would be affecting my knees. The pain is effectively on the forward stride and on going down the stairs. It responds well to anti inflams but I don't just want to mask the pain - I want to solve it!
Any ideas on whether this is running related and if so...what can I be doing that would cause this kind of niggle? I'm reticent to want to run until it settles, not least because it's painful!
Thanks in advance
