The good news, the bad news and the good news!

Thanks for everyone's tips for me last week.

Just done W4R1

The Good News - my new running shoes have cured my knee and calf pain - yay!

The Bad News - the pain has moved up to my pelvis - boo!

The Good News - I completed the runs - focusing not on if I was enjoying it but more on just doing it and trying to improve my technique (trying to change the mindset) and it wasn't raining and I didn't feel like dying at the end - Big yay!

More advice needed please - are there any good websites to look at to learn about running techniques - I think this might help with my aches and pains?

    Look for doing squats and lunges and pressups. These will strengthen the muscles you use for running and should help avoid injury in future. I'm a big fan of doing these. They have certainly helped me.
