Back pain after S&F?

I completed c25k 2 years ago and loved it but unfortunately got out of running. I have just completed week 1 again and this time I am combining with S&F. But I have had a lot of pain in my upper back, something that I didn't get last time. Could this be due to S&F working muscles that I didn't even know I had?? Or is it down to the running? Any tips on helping this pain would be great as I don't want to stop running now I am back into it!

Can you pin point what exercise(s) cause the pain and where exactly the pain is located. When do you feel the pain?


Hi, the pain has gone now (I've just finished week 7 of c25k and continuing with week 5 of S&F). It was only really during week 1 of S&F. The pain was in my upper back like across my shoulder blades. I think it was mainly due to working muscles that hadn't been worked for a long time/ever!! but its all good now and I'm loving the programmes :)
