Is joint pain a common beginner's problem, and does it improve itself over time?
This is currently the limiting factor on how far and how often I can run. (I go out 3 times a week, never on consecutive days, for between 45 - 55 minutes, and swim 3 times a week).
I do most of my running on concrete so I know that doesn't help, and I am also breaking in a new pair of shoes.
(Do new shoes commonly cause joint pain? I got a good quality New Balance shoe to help with stability and pronation).
Just wondering about other runners' experiences with joint pain and how long it takes your joints to adjust to running.
