Knowing it was RFL this Sunday thought my long run of the week would be no longer than 10k. My logic: do a 10k, a speed podcast Wed and a 7k on Friday. That way the 5k on a morning race would be just fun to run for a change instead of my gradual jog/run long runs. The canal paths are really overgrown and narrow at the moment. It is full of midges and the odd rat! I started to feel pain at the back of my knee and a bit higher for the first time ever! this was around 7k. I persisted with my 10k because I am bloody stubborn and promised myself a good stretch and flex afterwards (which I rarely do). I did do it and a hot bath but today I know how it feels to have some pain. Tight cords haven't helped either or sitting. Walking around is easing the pain but concerned now for Sunday. Any treatment/advice will be helpful. Happy running!
