Ok I've decided to get fit. Properly (very very overweight woman). Over a year ago I broke my tib & fib, so plates and screws in place. This September I did the cycling challenge 300 miles of cycling over a month. Had no discomfort in ankle region and improved over time in fitness. Following on from cycling, I want to do the couch to 5 k program and get into running. So on Monday I did the first program (almost died physically, out of breath etc but I did it!!) had aches in my ankle when I arrived home, like it had been worked on.. Gave myself a rest day as advised then repeated the 'run' (more like a snail jog!) this morning, but now I can barely walk for stiffness and pain. Is this normal?! Should I be having longer rest days or should I not be doing running at all?! Rang for docs/physio appt but nearest appt is 2 weeks and was signed off and approved of physical activity anyway. I also kinda want to be running the 5k by new year (it's a 9 week program so expect it will take longer) The ache kinda reminds me of beginnings of walking after non weight bearing, when you've overdone it a bit and have to RICE. Anyone else had issues in running? And taking it up?! Bearing in mind the last time I ran was probably 20 years ago!
