So Friday evening I did my W1R3 to disastrous consequences. the first 4 60 second runs went ok, infact the breathing inbetween recovered much quicker, however, run 5 I started to feel a slight twinge just below my left knee and made the fatal mistake of thinking I could ride it out. Unfortunately, the pain intensified to the point I had to stop and take all weight off the leg and slowly hop home....gutted!!
Over the weekend I've applied deepheat to the area and just tried to gently apply more and more weight on the leg. This morning I'm at the point where I can walk better, but the twinge is still there.
Tonight I'll be doing a 30 minute brisk walk, no running though. I'm just hoping to be able to start jogging again before the end of the week and then do the full Week 1 again next week....but I won't push it until I know my knee can withstand it.
The one saving grace is the diet is going well, plenty of root vegetables, soup and no rubbish junk food or sugar on cereal/coffee etc. Also, I've noticed I get filled up on less ( using a smaller dinner plate ).
Slightly annoyed but will persevere !!!
