Having had a pretty easy ride until week 6, I've been picking up niggling injuries which seem to be stopping me from completing the programme. I thought I'd identified the culprit as running on very quiet narrow country roads with my dogs (requiring me to turn my body frequently whilst running forwards in order to see if any cars were coming behind me). A change of route fixed that and my knees have been great since, but I then pulled a muscle in my calf. So frustrated was I that I might lose all the hard work to date, that I went out and bought an elliptical cross trainer. I'm currently doing some exercise on that in the hope that in the next few days I can get back out pounding the streets.
