Our expert says:
To start with are you a regular runner or is this a new and welcome exercise? The maxim walk before you can run is a useful one. Maybe the amount you do should iniitially be set at a lower level and gradually built up. Especially after years of inactivity. Can you touch your toes?
With any sport it is important to know how to do it well. Stretching before running is useful. I would suggest brisk walking initially to get the muscles loosend initiially.
Shoes can al;ways be a contributing factor.
It also may be the way that you walk/ run. Biomechanuically you may be slightly off kilter. But check the initial points first.
