hi c 2kers just back from run 5 ( not happy with my level of fittness before the next phase) ;-( and it felt great ran around the inner circle of Regents park and was very surprised when Laura said "that was your last run"!!! so i warmed down for 5 minutes and opened a new app on my phone called runtastic ( no plugs!!!! ) and ran across regents park towards Camden..it felt great!!!!!!.
My levels of fittness have increased and I am very happy...just 1 point as a ex footballer who ran a certain way for years I tried Laura's suggestion of heel striking during running and guess what? my left knee puffed up like a balloon!!! 3 Days of ice treatment and R.I.C.E. learnt from my footballing days helped.
I ran today as I used to and I felt 100% better....this way if running may help some people but I have decided to run as I used to.
I will do 1 more session of week 2 before I tackle week 3.
