I tried to do C25K a few weeks ago and I was left in so much pain that I haven't attempted it again (I was so sore I had a hard time walking, I didn't have shin splints and I've been fitted for a great pair of running shoes). I ran on the treadmill and I've had a few weeks now building up my endurance with using the elliptical as well as some strength training.
I don't know if I was so sore afterwards because I just hadn't exercised in a long time or if for some reason it could have been the treadmill. I feel like I can't run slow on a treadmill for some reason
I'd like to start it again and try running outside this time (may be less boring as well!) so I was wondering what y'all's opinions were.
Thanks for any advice!
