I had to give up my run 1 on Tuesday after 1 km because of pain in my right knee. Following advice on this forum, I waited two days and gingerly set out today, making sure my warm-up walk was brisk and not the ambling that I normally practise. The knee appeared to be fine when I started running, which is a good test since I am a heavy plodder. I managed the 30 minutes and then decided to carry on, Runkeeper giving me data that was encouraging as 5k approached. Completed it in just over 44 minutes, about right for my capability. So I will view this week's Parkrun closely, to see if I dare give it a try next week. An impossible dream a few months ago.
On another topic, close to all C25k students: has Laura gone back to anonymity since recording her commentaries? In any other field, she would have become a publicly known celebrity.
