I've been following a beginner's programme (again) after getting up to 10k last autumn followed by an enforced break. I've just reached the point where I am doing 30 - 40 minutes continuous running, albeit slowly. My last run was on Wednesday last. On Thursday I started with moderately severe muscle pains, aches and soreness that started in hips and thighs, but is now mostly in the quads and shins, with the left leg being much worse than right. My runs last Monday and Tuesday were identical to the previous week's, and I didn't do anything else to provoke DOMS. I've felt quite well in myself and have not suffered any other symptoms of a viral infection.
Does anyone have any idea what might be going on here? Is it just old age and decreptitude?
