I completed week 2 on Saturday running on tarmac, and have suffered with pain in both my knees since then. I do stretches before and after I run, and have been doing knee strengthening exercises for the last 4 days. My knees felt a lot better today so I decided to repeat week 2 run on grass, but my knees were sore the whole time.
I bought proper running shoes before I started couch to 5k, and am waiting for some knee supports to arrive.
I am really enjoying the running and feel very motivated but am worried the knee pain will stop me progressing. I am 53 and have never run before, and have never had problems with my knees before.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
