I'm a keen 50 year old cyclist and have just taken up running to keep my fitness up during the winter months when I can't get out much on the bike (It can be a bit brutal, not to mention dangerous, riding a bike in winter). So I did my first run last week, about 5k. I knew my cardiovascular would be fine due to my biking and that proved right. I ran it comfortably at a steady pace and did it in 26 mins. But what I wasn't prepared for was the day after when my legs wouldn't work! It took a couple of days for them to get right again. I've been out a couple of times since (doing the same 5k loop). My latest time is 23 mins and my legs no longer ache now.
I'm amazed how much i'm enjoying it. I don't have any long term goals yet, just to graduate to 10k and eventually do it in a good time.
Are there any basic tips and advice that would help me along.
