Ok, so I knew I wasn't very fit to begin with. I have now done week 1 and 2 sessions of week 2. I don't feel my fitness has changed at all. I still feel slightly out of breath when I run upstairs, exactly the same as before I started. Am I expecting too much too soon? If my fitness doesn't improve as I go along, I can't really move on to week 3 though, as I'm only just managing to do the 90 seconds at a time jogging (and that's a slow jog). Actually I do remember when I was younger, I used to cycle a regular 4 mile route, twice a day for 2 years. It never got any easier, I always found the last mile difficult. So it seems to me my fitness levels do not build up. Is that possible?
Also I'm getting pain around my left knee cap, just below and to the outer edge. I don't know whether to ignore it and push on, or rest. It's not really bad, just a niggle. I did look at knee strengthening excercises and in one part it says when bending your knee make sure it points in the same direction as your foot. But my thigh is rorated at my hip joint to actually my knee and foot are out of alignment by nearly 45 degrees, so that's physically impossible for me. Maybe that's why I'm getting the pain? Any advice much appreciated.
