Hi everyone.
Haven't been here in a while- I finished the 5k app a while ago. I'm not running 5k, I think, but I still run at least 30 min (not including warm-up/cool-down) three times a week. Pretty sure I'm accomplishing about 3.5k in the half hour it takes to listen to another installment of the Zombies app. You just start it and it mixes story bits with your play list while you run, "hoard" mode optional- the hoards make you sprint. All the building/fiddling you do afterwards, not while running.

As for stretching, I found this article, 6 stretches every runner should do, to be helpful and not overwhelming. You know what I mean; there are some articles that will name 47 must-do stretches, or whatever, as if we don't all have lives to get to!

I'm not sure, but I have the impression that *after* is more effective. That's when I do mine, anyway. Happy running!

I did it before the run, and again after the run. Doing it before was REALLY helpful. Far less of a stretching pain. My knees still kind of hurt as did my calves, but far better. Then I did them again after I ran. Made it more bearable.

Wow. I'm not sure you should be in pain at all. I'm still quite heavy for my height- was even heavier when I started running- and I've never had issues with my knees.

Is it possible you need to check your form/shoes/running surface? Just throwing it out there... it's a LOT easier to prevent damage than wait for healing...

Good luck, in any case

Hmmm... I could look into new shoes. I'm seeing my doctor in a week or so, I'll ask her as well. I thought it was just normal...

Week 5, day 1, was easier than week 4 for some reason! My calves and knees no longer hurt! So YAY! Going to get new shoes still, and doctor tomorrow!

Boy do I sweat. Yay for a sweat band.

Hey guys, its great to see a C25K thread. I finished this a while back but I'm still not running a full 5k, I'm slow so I'm doing just over 3k in the 30 mins. I loved the program so good luck to everyone doing it, it can seem impossible at times but trust your body. Its stronger than you think. You'll get there.
