Hello fellow runners!
Quick question to all re general running aches and pains - I am a fairly newly qualified couch to 5K graduate (and before you ask; I’ve had gait analysis, have comfy trainers, stretch before and after runs, honestly don’t run fast 5K takes me 45 mins) -But my question is does anyone else ache more now they’re running? I’m not talking nasty pain but l often get achy and weak feeling ankles, a bit of a calf niggle, and sore knees - but knee strengthening exercises are a revelation with this and really helping. I absolutely love running but these constant niggles make me feel older and not fitter! Is this my body telling running is not for me - or is this just my running legs strengthening and do the aches just go once youve been running longer?
