Hi - I am a female of 52, I am a member of WW and so far have lost 11lbs, I have also recently started going to the gym. I have heard about the NHS Couch to 5K and thought I would give it a go. I have ordered a pair of running trainers as the ones I use for the gym (even tho Reebok) do not offer much support. When I have been taking out my Rottie I have tried having a bit of a jog, I have found my ankles hurt and feel as if my weight is pounding into my knees, not to mention getting into a panic over not being able to breathe. Does anyone have any advice as to what I could do to support my knees and ankles, I did have to stop going to my previous gym due to my knees and went to physio, I am unable to kneel due to pressure on my knees and sometimes need to wear knee straps......Apart from this, I am determined to start the programme as soon as my trainers have arrives, hopefully they will offer the support I need to keep me going and I will look to the blogs for motivation.....Will update as soon as I am on my way!
