So, having done w6r3 on Saturday I set off pretty optimistically to do w7r1 - after all they're the same distance. Maybe I'd even try to up the pace a bit. Well within about a minute I was seriously thinking about stopping - left knee was complaining, though not sore exactly just nagging a bit. Decided to give it 5 minutes and then stop if it hadn't gone away - and by then the niggly feeling had gone so I carried on very cautiously - and also changed my route to run on a softer path for longer. Managed to finish - but now my right knee is complaining. (Did the knee exercises from the NHS site as my cool down as well) I'm thinking I should have taken an extra rest day and gone swimming instead today- so now my plan is now to wait until Thursday to do w7r2. Also I wore heels yesterday for the first time in months, so my knees could be objecting to that.
sigh - I really want to finish - but not at the expense of injury obviously.
