The week before last I did my first 5k run.........my was I thrilled! I'm slow but hey ho, a slow 5k is as far as a fast 5k is my ongoing mantra! A few days later I did a hill interval session. All ok at this point, I run hills all the time as I cannot avoid them where I live. Then by mistake I did a Stamina pod+ session, I should have been doing a Stepping Stones.
The last few days my knees have let me know that increasing distance and speed etc all at same time is not a good thing, especially for new graduates!
So I have been resting, applying ice and undertaking knee strengthening exercises.
I woke up this morning to find my old knees are feeling much better yeayyyyyyy! Tomorrow I may venture out for a short test run. And then rebuild slowly!
I am starting a fuller running log so that I have a clear record of my runs, I do not wish to make the same mistake again that's for sure😭
Can anyone recommend a specific log please?
Happy running all😃🏃🏻
