Well much to my surprise I managed to complete week 2 yesterday! I found the second run of the week manageable however yesterday (run 3) was awful! I felt like my legs were made of lead and it was a real struggle getting through it - however I did manage.
I'm wondering if it's down to changing my running shoes? I decided to tell my mum (a very keen runner) that I was doing the C25K challenge and while chatting about it told her I was running in my Nike trainers (just general gym trainers), as she is a keen runner (and also a bit of a shoe hoarder) with the same size feet she actually had 3 pairs of unused all singing all dancing running trainers that she gave me!
So I wore a pair yesterday, and although they were comfy, nowhere hurt at all I felt like I couldn't move my legs! And I had aches in my legs from my knees downwards, could this possibly be from the new trainers? Do I just have to persevere and I will get used to them?
I'm going to try and attempt week 3 day 1 run today (although the thought of 3 minutes running seems completely impossible) and I'm just wondering if I should go back to my very comfy, very impractical old trainers!?
Any tips would be hugely appreciated!
