I'm on week1 day2 of C25K, wanting to get fitter & lose weight. As an outdoorsy person I've always wanted to run & finally managed to get going, today's run/walk was in rain & a biting wind, a real thought to get out there but I managed & feel fab for doing it although my dog was less happy being dragged out .
I'm enjoying it & as I live in the country my run is quiet but I have a massive hill at almost halfway point & as the timings go I end up running up it both ways! My legs are fine when out(just get tired) but thigh muscles are achey, will this improve as the weeks pass? I'm guessing it's just my muscles saying hello after not much use of those particular ones?! I do run slowly & stretch after as I'm pretty unfit.
Also I have an elliptical trainer which is currently used as a clothes dryer, would a session or two on that on rest days be beneficial or too much to begin with?
Thanks in advance
