The long anticipated Week 9 and my knees :\

Well really enjoyed couch to (in my case 3k) even bought the Tshirt (literally along with a running mag). Did first 30 minute run in my lunch break few hours later and for first time my knees feeling a bit weak as in when I get up feel they want to "give". I hope this is a temporary thing as I have downloaded some music for when I leave Laura.

  • Did you change anything from your usual routine? It's always hard trying to pin down why a run doesn't feel quite right, as it could be anything from a change in terrain, a slight slip on some wet leaves (that at the time you hardly notice), or the start of a cold. The big thing is.....

    YOU JUST RAN FOR 30 MINUTES!!!!!!! :-)

    Hopefully after a bit of rest you'll feel as right as rain, and be able to graduate in a few days time.

    Best of luck!

  • I think we all went weak at the knees at the thought of having completed the programme. Congratulations. Just remember that you are not a fully fledged superhero just probably need a few more years don't overdo it. Just enjoy running for fun.

    Keep running, keep smiling.

  • Years!! ?

  • Next day still not sore but feel like they are going to give...thinking of missing tomorrows 30 min run as do not want to damage . What do forum think? Thank sx

  • Absolutely nothing wrong with giving your knees another day off! Go out when you're ready, rather than trying to overdo it just to complete the week. I know whereof I speak, having NOT rested when I should have and ending up having to take 2 months out to recover. Best of luck!
