I am a size 20 and weigh about 17 1/2 stone.
I am on week 3 of CT5K and am really struggling to get through it as I am in agony with my right knee.
I started week 3 and after the 1st run (which I managed ok) I was in a lot of pain in the back and side of my knee to the point that I could hardly walk on it for a week.
I decided to have a go on the treadmill as I read that there is less wear & tear on the joints. The next day I was in pain again.
I felt a little better this morning so have just tried to have another go with a support on my knee, but didn't even get through half a mile before knee started to hurt again.
Really gutted as I am really wanting to do the run, I am wondering if it's a case of mind willing but body unable? Am I too heavy?
Can anyone give me some advice please, I really want to do this.
