I embarked on the c25k bac in May. Having never ran in my life & no spring chicken at 46 years I thought I was going to hate it! However, surprisingly for me I loved it & was so proud with myself when I graduated. Give or take a few weeks I have kept up the 3x weekly runs.
I am now on week 2 of the b210k programme which I've kept up 3x week. The last 2 runs involve 5 mins warm up walk followed by 3x15 mins running ending with 5 min walk. My last run was Saturday but since then my knees, legs, ankles & big toe (!!) have really ached. I was meant to run today but have put it off
I'm now thinking
1/ am I too old for this?
2/ should I just keep to the c25k programme & just do 3x30min per week?
My aim was to participate in a half marathon next year but think this is unrealistic. I can't see myself completing the 10k at this rate.
Feeling a bit sorry for myself.
