Finished w7r1 today. I've really struggled with the last two 25 min runs! I feel like I've become fit enough to run for that long, but I feel like my body just can't keep up! Had some really bad pain in my knee, ankles and in the arches of my feet... Could all of this be down to wearing the wrong shoes? Or do I maybe just need to start adding in some strength training?
I'd really love some advice, as I'm scared I might cause some major damage if I keep going. But I'm so close to the finish line now!
***I actually just mapped out how often I've been running and realised that for the last 6 weeks, I've ran only twice each week (max!). Looks like I've been taking much longer breaks than I thought! I'm assuming that would probably be the reason why... But now since I'm here already, would you guys say it would be better to go back to an easier run, that's possibly not that demanding on my body?
