Please dont judge me but having weighed a few weeks ago and found out I am 16s8 I decided to start the couch to 5k. I have never been small but had been a stable size 12. I have been active and into moto x, tennis, swimming but within 7 years I have had four children and have little time for any of the sports I really enjoy & have just got bigger and bigger, I am now a size 20.
I have never been interested in running for fittness as there were other activities I found more fun but now realise that running could be the answer as I can do it as home (we already have a running machine as hubby likes to run).
I have had a little bit of discomfort on the inside of my lower leg when running that continues after the run but it is gone by the next day but on Monday I did the 3rd run of week 2 of the couch to 5k and am still suffering with the inside of my leg. It wasn't to bad when I was running but really hurt when I stopped. I put a cold compress on but am still feeling discomfort.
Now I don't know what to do. Today is day 4 since I last ran & I really want to do a run but I am still feeling a little discomfort in my leg. Do I still run or wait until the pain has completly gone? & is there anything I can do to stop/help the injury.
