Following bad knee pain in week 8, I rested for a couple of weeks (until I could walk again without pain) and restarted a bit further back, but sad to say after completing week 8 on Saturday, when I stopped running and started to walk, my knee was so sore it didn't want to weight bear. It hadn't been sore when I was running. Tonight I set off for w9r1 but had to stop after 2 minutes running as my knee was too painful and didn't want to carry any load. I have never given up on any run before this and am so frustrated to be so close to the finish but not able to run. Realistically I think there is repair work needed rather than just rest. I think completing C25k will need to wait a while.
