Many of you will know I have had ‘niggly knees’ since running further distances. Walking an avearage of 7 miles a day for three weeks whilst in Australia before Christmas really did not help.
So I have been seeing a private physio and completing exercises daily. I can tell the exercises are helping.
Last week she ‘manipulated’ my left (worse) knee ......(ooooo that was painful), followed by therapeutic ultra sound. i was told once it had settled again I could run slow, flat, short distances.......avoiding road running.
So today was my day. My first run of the year. Slow and steady in the glorious ( but cold) January sunshine. The photo shows some of my lovely route. Just 30 minutes, and I felt good, I knew I could have done more. BUT I am seeing the physio again next week and would really like to avoid more painful manipulation 😱😱😱.
So I’m back, but this month I will be mainly running short distances only. I am so glad I bought my lovely Brooks trail shoes late last year, perfect this morning!
