Week 7 run 1

Will be done today! I went out yesterday and ran for 1k and stopped! I have never ever done that. I've been working constantly and was so wound up not even the running was helping and my knee was sore so I just stopped and went home. I managed a good rest (left work after only 3hours last night) and am feeling able to cope with human life again so this run WILL be complete today :-) and I am looking forward to it :-) have a nice day everyone

Well done for keeping with the program, but if you are having pain, listen to your body. Running with pain can cause more injury. It is okay to take a few rest days. The nice thing about the program is that you can do it at your own pace.

Welcome to running!! There will also be future days when it just doesn't 'work" for you - just go home, forget about it, get some rest - and you will be on your way again.

Thanks both :-) in fairness absolutely nothing was working for me yesterday I just wanted to hide away and that was the only thing that was going to ease the situation ! Now that I have been able to do that I can carry on. The pain I get in my legs comes and goes and is tolerable it's due to very flat feet and also I have an accesory navicular which is stupidly large on my right foot as well as tibia rotation which affects my knees ! I've rested up and will give it another go today as my mind could do with the workout more than anything.
