Anybody else feel like this was a particularly large jump up from wks 1 & 2?
I am running on a treadmill so I can keep a steady pace throughout my runs and more easily track my progress until I can run comfortably at a 10km/h pace (then I might venture outside) but found I had to drop the pace quite a way to get a solid 3 minutes (8km/h has been the fastest I have been able to complete it in).
I'm not being stubborn or egotistical at all when I say this (I will happily slow down to complete a run) but I would rather be at a 8.5km/h to 9km/h minimum pace during the runs simply because the slower pace seems to be causing greater impact on, and pain in my joints.
I'm not sure how to rectify this, given that I am evidently incapable of running comfortably at my usual speed for this amount of time yet, but I am concerned that I may cause unnecessary damage to my knees for the sake of an extra 30 seconds running.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
