Hello fellow runneroos
I've had a massively stressful three days at work leading up to Friday so was looking forward to my "long" run this glorious Sunday morning. However, twas not to be......
Last night I decided that Mrs Dan and I deserved a treat, so we booked a table at a lovely restaurant in Wimbledon. Owing to my pathetic income this year we've been watching things like dining out but as I am working at the moment, I decided to splash out. You only live once eh? So we ate a tremendously fabulous dinner, drank a cheeky bottle of red and finished off with a vanilla panacotta!
It was as I was getting up to leave that I sensed a pain in my knee cap. It wasn't agonising in any way, but certainly strong enough to make me smart. My last run was three days ago and all seemed well with my legs, apart from a tiny bit of soreness on my right shin - certainly not enough to even worry about, so I was perplexed as to why my knee cap was painful. As a result of this I decided to postpone my run today. I could have run on it but being a sensible sort of chap, I decided that any pain in any part of my legs should be given time to stop hurting!
Has anyone else had a similar discomfort? I'm gonna pop downstairs now and grab the ice pack from the freezer to see if that helps. I've got to the stage with my running now that if I need to take a whole week off from it, then I just damned well will.
So I wish you all a tremendous week ahead with plenty of injury free running!
