As you may already know if you have read my earlier blogs on here, I am a large lady who enthusiastically embarked upon C25K to prepare for a Race for Life and hopefully get a bit less large. Anyway at the end of Week 2 I pulled the same ligament in both my knees and was on docs orders to take a break from running while my ligaments healed and I worked on strengthening my quads with some low impact exercises.
Well, I have been swimming once and done lots of leg extensions and felt ready to have another try at running today. I dropped back to the beginning as I didn't want to put too much strain on my knees and felt quite unfit after my break.
Today I went slowly and steadily and had a lovely run. It's funny that I was finding C25K quite tough before I injured myself, but I really missed it when I couldn't run. I have to say that I actually enjoyed today. Maybe it was because I was going so slowly, but I was also pleased that I didn't feel ill this time (unlike my first W1R1)! Good luck to everyone else who did W1R1 today!
