So, started C25K this week with two runs, the first was hideous - Monday night in the rain, could hardly jog, knee gave way approx 1.5 miles in to the 2.2 mile route and finished last!
Run 2, no rain, slightly better jogging (no way ready for running yet) and knee gave way approx 1.8 miles in to the 2.2 mile route. Again, finished last
So today, not giving up. Going to get fitted for some running trainers to see if the issue is with the way I run and then off on my 3rd run tonight to test them out.
I am definately couch. I knew I was unfit, I was very overweight at the beginning of the year and am now just overweight after losing 4 stone, and Monday showed me just how unfit I was but am determined to get fitter with a view to getting through the whole program.
The support from my group is brilliant, whist I feel I am holding them all up as someone has to stay with me, they tell me not to worry, it's my journey and there is no feeling that I should stop.
Fingers crossed today's trip to the sports shop will bear fruit and that I can finish the route. Will bring the question as to whether I continue if it isn't better as a result.
