I used to run years ago but that's history! Now I'm overweight (6.13ft - 16.7 stones) and suffering from few health problems (lower back problems / varicose vains / minor knee problems/overpronation). At this point running seems to be very painful and exhaustive! But I'm ready for that, no one said it was going to be easy start Anyway I was wondering if I could get some advice in terms of intensity and frequency. I try to stick to one of available plans (1min run - 90sec walk - repeat x8 times and so on) and run every 2 days. After a week I feel quite annoying shin pain. My question is: do I keep running every 2 days or do I make longer brakes between runs? Also how do I tell a difference between normal pain that's caused by running for first time in years and injury pain that could be caused by wrong running technique / wrong shoes etc. (asics evolution gel 5). Thanks for help and advice!
