I've been trying to run since 30th April (when I finished my second year of University) and struggle with pace. I've done Parkruns to get some distance, but have not improved at all. Too much walking and not enough running. On Monday I twisted my knee slightly and whilst looking for knee exercises stumbled on this site. I downloaded week one pod-cast (took a bit of doing - I don't understand technology) and tried the first run on a treadmill. (It's easier on my knee). I repeated it again today and will move up to week 2 tomorrow. It's great - no clock watching, all I have to do keep my pace constant. It will be different when I'm back outside, but I feel more motivated again. I will be able to run 5km without walking soon.
