Being a big nosed know it all running bore, I put her straight. She didn’t like it, so she kept me waiting five minutes while she slowly packed her enormous shop, pausing hand on hip to chat to the woman on the till. I couldn’t have cared less as I had nothing else to do and found the whole drama highly amusing.
I wonder how long it will take for the old myth of runners knees to die. I have pretty hefty damage to one knee and haven’t had a single running related injury so far - touch wood!
