I've recently completed the couch to 5k & have surprisingly loved it, despite never having ran before & being very unfit.
My knees can't take pavements, so have been running over fields which has worked well for me. I work full-time & the nights are drawing in, so I've got to find somewhere else to run during the week, over the winter. I thought joining the gym & using a treadmill would be the ideal solution, but tried it for the first time last night & hated it. It was boring, hot, too noisy and I didn't get the 'runners high' I that I get when running outside.
Will pavements really wreck my knees? (I'm very overweight) or is there some other type of surface I could search for that would likely be lit in the evening?
