Its definitely an addiction :-) runners high. And just hopefully everyone who does this program knows that they are runners. Everyone who is at the beginning, everyone who is at the end and all in between should consider themselves runners. They've earned that title!

Today I went to the gym and did day 2 of the c25k on the tedmil then did thigh presses at 40 lbs. Did some calf work and core work leaving my shoulder to be in pain if it wanted. Will be so glad when I can work my arms again. But I k even if i icked butt today!!!!!

Normally, if I feel that sore, I am thrilled because it means I pushed myself the day before - my muscles are creating results even if I do not see them yet. Mind you, it also meant that on occasion I over did it.  Over-exerting takes some TLC, yet didn't mean I needed to miss a workout. Bar any medical issue, my trainer always encouraged me to work the kinks out with my workout routine.  As my muscles warmed up, sure enough the kinks diminished and often disappeared. Hang in there with loads of patience and perseverance!  You can do this!

Thank you Shannon :) I will be going out today for a walk with the fiance and the teen so no missing, just easy doing it. I have fibromyalgia so some days it just hurts but I push through it because I know in the end the moving is better for me

This is just a theory but it sounds like a lack of leg strength. My knees used to hurt when I tried to do lunges. I beleive it was a lack of muscle. Without muscles there's more pressure on the actual joint. I did negative split squats for a month. Done like the below video but hold onto a chair, and lower yourself slowly on each rep (a slow 4 count). 8, times, switch legs, and repeat. Rest 90 seconds do do it again. 3 total sets. The problem is you will need to do them on your run days ( after ) because they are the muscles that need to rest on rest day. I know this will be very difficult so I wouldn't expect to start on those numbers. Heck, do 2. If you do 3 next time you win!! The nice part is you can hold on as much as you need to not allow for knee pain and you'll still gain benefit. You'll find over time you automatically hold on less. As your leg muscvles get stronger, there should be less pressure on your knees.

 

Also a point of note. I found much less running discomfort when I got fitted for running shoes at an actual running store (I went to Fleet Feet). Your feet will thank you.

 

As always please keep in mind I am not a medical  or fitness professional and you're taking advice from a guy who's only been running for 7 weeks longer than you. I'm basing my reccomendations on weight lifting and the fact that I didn't suffer what you have as a result of that (I think). Strength training is always a win!!

Thanks Azatol I will add that in.

Shannon, my doc told me that movement helps so I said hell I will try it.... Gave up after a while last year cause I hurt to much after and thought the doc was a quack. However, now that I move some every day I find I have much less pain. The theory is that the pain is nerves firiring off wrong and all the time that causes the fibro pain. Movement helps this because it makes the muscles stronger....or so I'm told or also what I got out of the conversation with the doc lol. I also was put on lyrica and am finding that combined I have much less pain each day.

Today I managed to do half of week 1day3. Will do it again till I get all the way through it. My legs were hurting so bad I had to stop. But I am finding that the treadmill and road are VERY different. I'm going to strive to get out doors for my c25k on Tue. Worked thighs both inner and outer at 50 lbs 20 reps x3 and then abs at 20 reps 40 lbs 2 sets. Chest press at 20 lbs to save the shoulder. Man I feel tired and great at the same time
