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 😩. 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 c25k😁

Now got a plan from the physio with stretches etc.

Happy running peeps 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

Sorry to hear that Cotswold-runner. But it’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 it’s good you can still run, albeit carefully. I’m a Cotswold runner too - it’s all those bloody hills that do it! 🤨

I try and run on the flats FlickM3 😁

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!!

You’re doing the sensible thing CR. You’ll be fit again soon enough, and at least you haven’t let it get to the point where you’re sidelined for months. Little runs are still runs after all.

Enjoy them! 😀
