Hi all! I'm starting the C25k program. Currently in week 2. I'm having a lot of knee pain. Is this normal and how long does it last? I'm 60 yrs old but generally in good health. Been walking for awhile but this is my first running program. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum
I am not an expert but may be good idea to consult doctor esp. if U did not have knee pain before.
Personally I have long had aches and pains in my knees but have found that gentle jogging helps reduce it whilst sitting resting can make it worse:- counter-intuitive I know.
2nd thoughts - What shoes do you have? My first "running" weeks were with old non-running-specific trainers and I found that going to Running Bath and buying appropriate shoes made a big difference (now on my third pair).
