Our expert says:
I think you just need to back off and slow down on the progress, because that pain is probably a sign of just overdoing it. That may or may not be related to weight - obviously, there is a great deal more strain on the joints but it can happen in anyone.
So my advice is to back off and stick to walking, maybe repeat week 1 of the programme for a while, just allow the both to adapt and respond.
Then just build slowly. I know it's frustrating, but this is a long-term process. It might also help if you can find a softer surface, perhaps grass, to do these sessions on.
