I am in my 30's, but am probably having as challenging a time of it as someone much, much older: I have exercise-induced asthma, patellafemoral disorder, foot problems, custom orthotics and a weak cardiovascular system. A little more than a year ago, I needed a cane to walk. I can walk unassisted now (after physio and with orthotics), but I am finding even week 1 to be all but killing me. If I can finish week 1, what will I need to do to progress? Is there a remedial version for people who are barely even at the "Couch" level for Couch to 5k? Are there ways to make it easier without quitting or cheating?
