Hello fellow runners. Wanted to say hello and get involved. I have always liked the idea of running but been told a few times that I am not a ‘runner’ and don’t have good form and will hurt my back/knees so never went for it. Then a couple of months ago, to support a friend going through chemo I did a Park Run with her (half walked it half jogged it) and actually made it (granted my itb was killing me straight away). And then I thought - forget what people say - I am going for it but in a supported way. And so have now started the couch to 5k. I have been waiting for the aches and pains to kick in but 3 runs in, it has been fine. I stretch before and after - for about 10 min or so. Perhaps too early but I think I may be able to finally become a runner. At 50 who knew!
