She's off the IC!

β€’11 Replies

After a week of resting my knee, I'm sure this was due to a steep downhill run, I tested it for a 5k this morning.

Even a week off makes a difference to fitness and ability but it felt great to be out again and first time in my graduate couch to5k top 😁😁.

My knee felt just on the right side of pain and I ran some of it on grass which the knee definitely approved of! I'll see what the physio says tomorrow and try to progress to 6k next week.

Never thought I would miss running so much!

Happy running to all πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Thanks runsome, so far the knee is holding...


So glad you were able to run virtually pain free today! You did the right thing taking a break! πŸ‘πŸ»

I like running on grass too - but not if it’s too long because my snail feet get slowed down, which they really can’t afford to do!! 🐌🐌

Thanks mountaindreamer, I expect I'll be told to do squats πŸ˜–

Just praying I'm not told to stop running completely.

Glad to see you're running again, crawly! Good luck on the 6k, I'm aiming for that by the end of next week!


Cheers Jundal and best of luck with the 6k, I bet you smash it! πŸ˜ƒ
