I'm training for the Edinburgh marathon and only started running a few months ago. I've had various aches and pains that I've manged to overcome with physio but now I'm finding that as my weekend training runs are getting longer it's taking me all week to recover from them. I ran 11 miles for the first time ten days ago and hurt so much afterwards I couldn't run for several days. I completed my first half marathon on Sunday but my legs still feel like they've been beaten and I'm not sure when I should try running again. I think I'm doing all the right things; stretching before and after running, eating and drinking plenty; so I'm not sure what the problem is. Am I just trying to do too much too soon?
