Our expert says:
Difficult one. Pain is a guide to something that is wrong, but sometimes, you have to encounter some pain to progress. My advice is to judge the 'character' of the pain - if it's severe, then obviously stop, but if you can manage it, then keep going. But very important, if the pain gets worse during training, or is suddenly a lot worse when you finish training, then look at it as a sign of something more than just tenderness. It should not change over the course of the run. That's the key. What sometimes will happen is that you'll feel pain to start with, then it disappears, and then returns at the end. That's OK (not great, but OK). But if it's much worse, or comes back suddenly and is more severe, then rather back off.
