I graduated about 2 months ago and have slowly started to work up to 10k. Got to 8k a few weeks ago but then had a sore knee and tried to pull back a bit.
Did RICE and wore compression bandage next run and started back at 5k - knee ok - then did 6k and woke up with really stiff sore knee next day!
Haven't run for a week now and have been doing the knee strengthening exercises since and a lot of walking but put off running and nervous to go out again, feel so demotivated, was so close to 10k and was going to sign up for a run but feel what's the point now.
Any words of wisdom would be appreciated
