Well , what an interesting week . I've had some IC and walking not running weeks but I've been to see a sports physio (from the young woman who sold me new shoes) who offers free consultations ( I think because most of his work is for the private insured ) and loves running, and loves helping runners.
It was great to see all the reassuringly correct angles of my body drawn out on a screen after running on a treadmill, but , who knew? we discovered that I'm running "on a tightrope" and not on two parallel lines, seeing where my feet land. So work to do but he's not going to charge me an arm and a leg for four sessions to help me and I've got some "go for the burn" calf exercises to do.
So today I felt like Charlie Chaplin trying to get the knees out a bit. Happy with a nice steady 5k again though .
I feel passionately that I want to be able to do this running lark injury free and happily for years ahead so that was my treat to myself. Nowhere near the 10k but happy and healthy ...now where's my bowler hat?
