Hi everyone. I have just joined the forum and was wondering if I could get some advice from you all.
After having 4 kids, I have decided to get back into shape and start getting fit. I downloaded the 'Couch to 5K' for my phone and have just completed week 2, with the intention to move onto 10k afterwards.
The problem I am having is that during the run and immediately afterwards, I get an intense pain that feels like its behind my shin bones and my calf muscles pull really bad. The pain subsides after a few hours but it always comes back on the next session. Could this be down to just starting from scratch? or something else?
I am also running in a pair of Reebok ZigLites that I have used as fashion trainers for the past year. do i need to purchase a dedicated pair of running trainers?
