Slowly slowly due to injury

Hi fellow runners

Have been suffering with pain behind my knee for a few weeks when running and it started to get worse last week so as I have healthcare through my work I asked for a referral for physio to find out what was happening. I saw a very helpful physio yesterday and I might have a hamstring injury so have to halt my training for 10k and bring it down a bit ๐Ÿ˜ฉ. But it's the sensible thing to do. Have been out this morning and did 3k a bit of pain but not as bad as last week when I actually stopped and just walked home as the pain was too bad - i have learnt to listen to my body when its trying to tell me something these days. So I will get there but it might be a slow climb but there's no rush and I would rather keep.going slowly than not at all. The thought of not running now fills me with sadness- who would have thought it before the summer when I started on this journey with c25k๐Ÿ˜

Now got a plan from the physio with stretches etc.

Happy running peeps ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Sorry to hear that Cotswold-runner. But itโ€™s great that you could get some expert advice straight away.

Just take it slowly and continue to listen to your body.

Sorry to heart this but itโ€™s good you can still run, albeit carefully. Iโ€™m a Cotswold runner too - itโ€™s all those bloody hills that do it! ๐Ÿคจ

Well, I can understand that if you're injured. However, for me, I don't drive so can't escape Chipping Norton and its environs, and it doesn't do flats. Having said that, it's stood me in good stead as I didn't find the Blenheim 10k on Sunday a strain, and lots of people were walking up the hills. I guess what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, though I was pretty sure in the early weeks of c25k that it was going to kill me!!

Youโ€™re doing the sensible thing CR. Youโ€™ll be fit again soon enough, and at least you havenโ€™t let it get to the point where youโ€™re sidelined for months. Little runs are still runs after all.

Enjoy them! ๐Ÿ˜€
