On my days off from C25K, I have been power walking on the treadmill at a brisk pace for me about 4mph. As my c25k mileage is picking up I have found my knees getting really “tired” I don’t feel like I’ve injured them but rather just overuse soreness.  Is it a bad idea to be power walking like this on the days off? Should I try a different exercise for the off days instead of walking which is using the same muscles as running??

In some cross country races your club or team may be assigned a specific pen or position on the start line, which is of course very much out of your control. However, if this is not the case then it can be important to consider your starting position. Some courses narrow very quickly or involve sharp bends shortly after the start so to avoid becoming ‘boxed in’ or ‘squeezed’ on the first turn you should consider where on the start line will give you the clearest run.
