Took my sore knees out for a run today and they did me a favour. Because of them, I decided to go for a really slow, gentle meander and set off in the opposite direction to usual, away from the park and out past the huge and very lovely houses on the way out of town and back in a loop. Enjoyed having a nose, but also really enjoyed the running. I was going much slower than I have been lately, and I also tried out Juicyju's technique from a recent post (thanks!) of counting until I reach things, and it really works. I was thinking way less about everything else and got into a nice natural rhythm. Kept the pace slow all the way round though, and did over 5 k EASILY! So, it can be easy! This is great news! Need to stop pushing all the time I think and just enjoy some leisurely runs, and will definitely start changing my route more often and do some more exploring. Knees were ok. I was aware of them, but no pain, so I'm going to give Parkrun another go tomorrow. Happy running everyone
