So having got over my knee niggle I was looking forward to some lovely half term runs (last week). Alternatively ended up I A&E at the beginning of the week with rapid and irregular heart beat and screamingly high blood pressure. Was eventually sent home when it was decided I wasn't having a stroke or heart attack! At the doctors the next day (with heart feeling back to normal) I asked if I could go running- she said yes so long as I stopped if I felt unwell.
Went out with 'Laura' and the security of the stepping stone podcast and managed three good 5k runs last week with no untoward effects - they were the highlight of a rubbish half term.
This week all tests (and there were many!) look to be normal so I am expecting a lecture from my doctor about stress when I go back on Monday. However more aggravating for me was return of knee pain as soon as I put heeled work shoes on on Monday. Knee has niggled again all week but is much improved from avoiding heels.
Have promised myself a trip to running shop tomorrow to check out advice around my running shoes (though knees don't hurt when I run!) and hope knees might behave enough to get in a run over the weekend.
Frustrated runner wishing you all happy healthy running this weekend!
