I almost made it through week 1, but the third run was really hard and I quit stopped with 10 minutes remaining. I feel pain in my ankles, knees, fingers, hips, shins, and thighs. Reluctantly, I am going to pause my c25k for now. I feel as if I begin once I've lost more weight, then maybe it will be easier on my body. Thank you all for your support and kindness. I promise I will be back! In the meantime, I am going to continue the elliptical as my cardio 5-7 days a week, strength train every other day, and continue a reduced calorie diet.
