I just finished the first week of Couch-to-5k and I am new to running. I love this program, but I'm finding that my ankles are KILLING me about 5 minutes into the workout. Everytime I run for that minute, the pain is almost unbearable and it makes me want to stop running.


Is this normal for beginning runners? Will the pain eventually go away? Am I doing something wrong?
