Guess I should update on c25k.  The pain in my knees just kept getting worse, so I decided to take a couple of weeks off running to see if that would help, especially since the weather was getting cold.  In the meantime, I hired a friend who is a personal trainer to help me develop

C25k Week 3 Day 1

Despite advice to the contrary , I went ahead and ran without a rest day today. I feel okay, and I plan to run tomorrow night as well in order to get my three runs in for the week. I don’t want to fall behind! Today’s run was fine.  I didn’t make it all the
