I broke my back and sustained a spinal injury in 2013 and although I managed to learn to walk again, I have nerve damage in both legs. Running wasn't really on the agenda, but in an effort to get fit again I gave Couch to 5K a go and I could do it! It's not pretty, but I have been able to get to week 2. Having also crappy knees, I have stuck to Week 2 for three weeks. I still feel it is challenging, so even if I am never able to run 5K, it's still an excellent programme and I enjoy the podcasts and the motivation they provide.
Very inspiring to read other's experiences and efforts on this forum! Thank you!
