Well, me and my boy (Winston my black lab and running partner) made it through Week 1, although we had to do it 5 times, and embarked on Week 2 this morning. My knees are killing me! I'm a 45 year old lady who is 6.5 stones overweight and although Doc says I can't do any more damage to the meniscus tear I already have in my knee, it sure doesn't feel like it. I play squash with my dad each week and my knees have never felt like this. Seems to be a vicious circle, I don't exercise because it hurts and I eat instead, so then gain more weight, and am back to square one again. I don't want to give up this time, and anyway I quite enjoy saying to myself 'I can run'!! Any tips from anyone greatly appreciated.
