I am indeed Zac and Sophie's grandma, and my name in RL is Moira. Started C25K about 9 weeks ago, and everything went really well until the second run of Week 7, when my left knee started to hurt like mad. I attempted run 3 but only got as far as 20 minutes, then I had to stop. I limped to the end of the podcast, and then back to my car (I run on a local Common about 10 minutes drive from home.)
I decided to give my knee a rest for a few days. My knee was a good bit better this morning, but I couldn't bear the thought of running for 25 minutes so I went back to Week 5. I got through run 1 OK, my knee is no worse but really no better. Not sure where to go from here...continue Week 5, take some more rest.....I know that if I go to my GP he will tell me to stop. A year ago he said to me, "Exercise, but whatever you do, don't jog, you will knacker your knees." (I had no issues with my knees at the time.)
Really want to get to the end of C25K.
