W3r2 - can I run any slower?
I did it this morning - somehow - but I do wonder about this S-L-O-W jogging and its effect on my knees?
No problems at the moment but I am wary

You give me hope 😀😀
I’m at least 5 stone over weight and I wouldn’t say I Run it’s more of a plod lol. I don’t know what it is in mph but on Strava I ‘run’ at approx a 17 - 17.10 minute mile. I’m 4”11 my hubby is 6ft and he walks with me. I think it’s more about building up the amount of time your actually running than the speed especially to start with then the speed will come later. X
Land lightly. It takes practice but you will get lots of it in the weeks ahead 😉
