I've managed to complete 2 of the week 3 runs (to my surprise and delight!), but my knees, especially the left one, are aching quite badly. I've been stretching after every run, and doing the knee strengthening exercises, but the pain seems to be getting worse.
This is a bit disheartening. I have been allowing 2 days' rest between runs 2 and 3 each week, so I thought I'd rest for 3 days this time, before attempting week 3, run 3. Any thoughts or advice? Should I keep doing the knee strengthening exercises on rest days?
Thanks for any tips!
