Don't really know what happended tonight, set off all excited and feeling good. Got half way through and had a really bad pain, left side of my left ankle going up into my shin! I had to stop and try and stretch it out. I ended up doing alot more walking than I'd banked on. I felt really disappointed, as i hoped that I'd do well on my last run of week 1. Perhaps Im expecting too much of myself...i have only completed one week LOL. I think i will do the run again on Sunday before moving on. Perhaps i need to concentrate on my technique. My husband says i run flat footed!! It is hard to break the habits of a lifetime, but I'm thinking about every step, trying to land on the ball of my foot. Guess lots of you have experienced aches and pains....guess its natural when using muscles that haven't been used for years. Don't want to sound all negative, Im still going for it. Happy running!!. xxxx
