I had a niggle in the knee and a dull ache in the shin so had a week off and then returned to 5k runs only and no paths, just grass. Although this was harder in some ways, long grass, avoiding dips in the ground, tree roots and twigs, I felt my legs were given more chance to recover. I was able to do a 10k today, on gravel path and mud, not as soft but feel I am back on track which is good. Tired but hopeful I can continue with a long run each week and 2 X 5km which seems good for me right now. Julie
