I completed the C25K over a year ago and dearly love running now. I look forward to it, I get grumpy if I can't for whatever reason and I go on about it all the time.
I'm 47 years old, have never been very active and thought I'd never be able to run 5K until I followed this program to the letter and as you see, it really works.
At my peak I've been doing 30K per week in the form of a 15K, a 10 and a 5 each week.
Sadly now it seems the rug is being pulled from under me and the thing I have come to love is being snatched away.
I've been suffering injuries, I have rested and healed only for something similar to occur.
I have had gait analysis and have the proper gear and supports but after an x-ray and physio it seems my knee has fluid on it as well as the onset of arthritis. This is making it impossible for me balance properly on that leg so everything below it is doing much more work. This results in pain down all sides of the lower leg and around the ankles.
I'll keep going physio but I fear that's it for me. Beaten by age I feel. Just when I thought I'd found a new passion.
I have an MRI booked but I don't hold out much hope. Just one of them things I guess.
Sorry, just feeling sorry for myself. enjoy it while you can.
