Hi, this is my first post / question. I'm only 39 and feel generally I'm not totally unfit My job involves quite a bit of driving, but also a fair bit of activity (including sometimes moving photocopiers up/down stairs!) - it's not like I'm sat at a desk all day.
My wife and I started the C25K program a couple of weeks ago, both bought new running shoes, and week 1 went really well - loved it and was really looking forward to building up over the weeks. However, I started to get niggles in my right knee and left ankle during week 2.
In fact I've had to halt the program after week 2 run 2, that was on Wednesday 9th - here we are on Sunday 13th (I've not run since) and my legs are still killing me!
It's still very much my right knee and left ankle, but my whole legs generally ache... first thing in the morning I'm hobbling round like I'm 80 (no disrespect to octogenarians)
Maybe I'm just not cut out to be a runner and I should try cycling or swimming, but I was really loving the running - working through the program with my wife, encouraging my brother and some friends to have a go too... It kind of feels like I'm letting them all down - but my legs are clearly telling me to quit
Feeling rather glum about it all - is there any hope for me?
