I have just done W3R1 and although I managed all the runs as per the programme my knees were constantly niggling. I don't get sharp shooting pains it's more like a dull ache, and so far it hasn't made me feel like I need to stop but I wonder if this is something I just need to work through or if I should actually stop...?
I have read lots of posts on here about the strengthening exercises (squats) which I am doing, I go to yoga once or twice a week, and before starting C25K I did a lot of walking so I didn't expect this to be so hard on my knees, particularly at this early stage. I am also doing the recommended stretching after the runs, and the last couple of times I have put ice packs on my knees afterwards too.
Any thoughts / advice / experience you can share would be welcome as I really don't want to give up, but nor do I want to injure myself...!
