My c25k journey is still in the early stages but I have already learned a lot.
On the positive side, I have to say I have found the runs, so far, to be quite easy. I really haven't broken sweat or been out of breath.
On the flip side, I have encountered some issues/niggles a few hours after runs. After w1r2, I had shin splints (which haven't returned since) and following w2r1, I had some pain on the inside of both knees which lasted for a good 24 hours. During that run (w2r1), I felt a slight jarring of my left knee on every footfall.
Today (w2r2), I really focused on slowing down my pace by shortening my stride and reducing cadence as well as flattening my stride (before there was a bit of a bounding). I have to say that this running style doesn't feel very natural but today's run was good (no jarring of the knee) and I will probably be very thankful of the slower pace when it comes to the longer runs next week (and beyond).
Just wanted to add a quick thanks to all of the experienced runners who hang around in this forum and give us beginners their advice and encouragement. It really is appreciated.
