No Gremlins on the canal this morning!

No Gremlins on the canal this morning!

Yesterday, on this site I committed to do a virtual run this morning with Ruth_canal_runner , we were both aiming to put each of our gremlins in the box and fasten tight the lids!

Ruth did a superb job earlier, ensuring a gremlin free wood. I then decided I'd check out my local canal path for her, and can confirm, no gremlins about!

I have run once in past 10 days due to niggly knees. But I have rested, iced, completed knee strengthening exercises daily, and I'm back! The IC gremlin that kept telling me I could not do it anymore has been given notice......not on my watch mate!

So a steady, slow 3.5k completed. To be honest the first half k was touch and go, few short walks etc. But then I found my form and relaxed, covered a gentle further 3k whilst listening carefully to my knees. And they were fine😃👍🏼

So IC gremlin away with you!

Now about to ice the knee again and will take good care of them from now on! This girl can run 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️

IC Gremlin duly banished! Jealous of your canal :) what a great day to be out. I bet your knees are grateful for a bit of moving about and hopefully they'll allow you to slowly up the running a little more over the coming weeks! Just need to keep that box tightly shut, maybe a few bricks on the lid will help :)

A great day to be out Ruth_canal_runner , thanks for the company! Yeap, slowly, slowly. I think I'll do two runs a week, for a while and see how we go! Have a good week, and stick with your plan now you've got the better of Sally!😉

Well done to both of you - it was a great idea to run 'together' as gremlin-tamers.
