  1. hi all! I've been finally sticking to c25k this time round and just finished week 7 today. I have some knee issues and have had to battle shin splints on several occasions throughout. I was wondering if I'm trying to prep for a 10k that's in April (I'm setting a stretch goal of completing in under an hour - was 1 hr 36 last year with no training). Im just curious if it's better to continue the program and move to the 10 k potion once I'm done the 5k and continue to increase time running and distance, or if I should repeat the longer run days at the end of this one until I can actually hit 5 k in the allotted time. Week 7 I'm averaging 1.87 miles a day which isn't too close to what it should be for 25 min jogging and 10 min walking. I usually jog at about 3.4 on the treadmill. Any advice is appreciated
  2. I also have bad knees and used to get shin splints when I first started but am now on week 8. I'd say definitely try and just go super slow. Maybe jog at the same pace you walk but just do the jogging movement. And repeat any days you can't make it through. I struggled to get through a lot of days but my body is starting to surprise me by what I'm able to do. Good luck!!
