Hi all I have been really enjoying the Couch to 5k until recently. I got to Week 4 feeling really proud of myself, but I have started to get pain in my lower left leg muscle. It’s really annoying as I can feel myself getting fitter. I’ve been resting longer between runs and just repeating Week 4 to see how it goes but I’m still getting pain.
I really don’t want to quit but I don’t want to injure myself either. I am overweight so should I stop until I lose some weight before trying again? I’m 44 by the way and I do regular exercise but running is new.
Any tips/advice very welcome please! Should I see a physio to check it out?
