Aghhhh will try again

I started very well,complete week 1,and began week 2 run 1 my legs, knees ached somewhat but was okay. I felt so embarrassed I went to a running club for beginners which I thought I did well at, I expected to ACH the next day what I did not expected was that I would be unable to put my right foot to the ground though if I wore sandals with a bit of an heel ankle okay and able to walk, and that it would be painful,groin also a bit sore, and that my leg (right one knee and all) would be difficult/play up. So since then about 10days ago I have given both the running club and couch 2 5k a miss until leg feels better, at times even walking has been a no go.

I am nowbiding my time intend to do some walking to keep on the move.

  • Hi Glen53!

    If at first you don't succeed... etc. I'm on the same journey and fully expect to have hiccups on the way. You will get there in the end!


  • Ouch! Are you able to do some stretching, swimming and/or steam room/sauna? Have a massage or even a visit to the doctor? Have you tried hot baths with Epsom salts- incredibly old fashioned but I have found this is really helpful for aches and pains ...

    Chin up anyway- I think he programme is nine stages rather than calendar weeks, from everything I 've read on here

  • Thanks Guys, walking over back to week one podcast, yes massage is good/great, have been looking at knee/leg exercises.

    many thanks
