I've just started C25K and am loving it. I'm 56, not particularly overweight but haven't really done any exercise for years although as I can't drive, I do walk a lot. I'd really appreciate advice on the following.
I have just completed W3R2 - and I am taking those 3 minute runs VERY slowly! So slowly in fact, I've noticed I don't cover as much ground as I did in the first two weeks. Is that normal/OK?
Also, I have found that my legs really ache after runs. I always take a recovery day - sometimes two - but there is always a little residual stiffness, even though it is easing up slightly. Will this disappear eventually? I really don't think I'm over doing it (see above!) and I have great trainers and my feet aren't causing any problems at all.
Would be grateful to hear what people think.
