Went for my first run of week 9 tonight. As I said in my previous post, my dodgy knees have been playing up, so the last few weeks have been a bit tough. Tonight was so different. Yes, they still ached a bit, but I've increased the icing , the stretching and the strengthening exercises. It made such a difference for the pain to be less and for me not to be feeling anxious about them on the warm -up walk. That anxiety has affected my breathing over the last few runs.
I've read other people posting about ' good runs' and wondered when it would be my turn!
Tonight I actually had a good time. I joked with my hubby on the way round. My breathing was spot on. I pushed it towards the end and could still have run for longer.
My fingers are firmly crossed that there will be more runs like this.
Graduation is set for this Saturday!
