Hey Jason,
Agree with all the above. I suspect your cardio fitness is greater than your lower leg fitness which is why you are suffering. 30 min for 5k is a reasonable pace. One thing you could try would be run-walk-run, just a couple of mins run then a min walk, then run again. The runs should also be slow and not sprints between the runs! Once it feels ok just gradually reduce the walk time (over days-->weeks)

Thanks for the advice NID, I decided to leave the run for today because as i was working today i could feel my legs starting to hurt. I was getting very slight pains in my shins and below my kneecaps. The pain is not really painful if that makes sense but i thought it would be best to rest today and head out on a run tomorrow just to be safe. As i am new to running i can't tell if this is normal and is something i can run through or it's definitely me doing to much to soon.

I went for a short run last night. Felt ok but the minute i started my run my legs started to get stiff again and my knees started to hurt. Decided to take at least 4 days off to recover then carry on from there. I'm just a bit worried i won't be ready in time for the charity 10k i'm doing on the 4th June.

Got something to say?
