Ive been running now since May last year, starting from scratch with walking and running alternating. I was over 14 stone then and Im now 11 and a half stone and ran for an hour continuously for the first time last Saturday week. It was fine except my knees were very sore afterwards and I only ran once the next week. Ive just spotted the Croydon 10K on 4 April and was tempted. I would only want to finish obviously, but maybe its a bad idea. If I plod in last I'll feel like a twit and maybe I need to do something about my sore knees first. Im still losing weight slowly, Im still pretty lardy at 11.5 stone for a girl of 5 ft 3.
The knees hurt mainly going up and down stairs.
