When I tried to start running regularly after a long break I kept picking up injuries, mostly in the lower leg, cos I was trying to run like I used to rather than how my body was ready for. Once I accepted that I could not run as well as I used to and went right back to basics - ie really slow run/walk - I stopped getting injured and made progress. Several months on I still havene't got the speed back but endurance is building nicely and injuries (touch wood) seem to be a thing of the past.
So possibly, a combination of the extra weight and pushing yourself too hard too soon?
