It was such a relief to finally complete week 1 this morning. I started the programme in February and after only 2 runs managed to b***r my knee. (I don't think my knee liked being asked to shift 4 stone of excess weight at a speed greater than my usual snail like pace!) Found a lovely physio who was really supportive of my wish to become a runner at the age of 55. It was so frustrating having to wait until my ligament had fully healed but I've learnt my lesson - go at my body's pace. I'm having 2 days rest between runs and that seems to work for me.
I've been following all the forum posts with a mixture of envy and admiration. You're an inspiring bunch! I look forward to the day when I eventually have the proud badge of 'graduate' after my name........It may take me longer than many on here but I'll get there!
