The good lady wife and I are on week 3 of C25K after a lack of exercise due to illness. I tried this program a few years ago and gave up after week 3 due to knee pain. I was in the gym on the off days and maybe overdid it. I definitely want to avoid having to stop due to injury. IT band has been no problem this time around but the right knee aches on the off days. As the distance inreases I foresee a possible increase in the "knee niggles". Any advice from completers on avoiding this kind of issue? I have nice new trainers and do static stretches after each session. We are sticking rigidly to the programme and run at a slow, steady pace.
Thanks in advance.
