After graduation I had hoped to settle into a bit of a consolidation period. My knees had other ideas....I got new shoes and had a terrible run...by this stage I was worried that having spent the money my shoes were wrong and my knees would never be right either...I was a bit despondent!!
Thanks to all the advice on here, direct or indirect I think I am back in the game! It is such a help to be able to read how others have dealt with problems they have had.
I decided to have a week off. I have done lots of squats and leg raises and stretches are my best friends! I went out today to see how things went the c25k speed podcast came on my phone and I thought I would listen but run at my own speed. It was so good to be out again! Of course I ended up doing the podcast, taking a bit of a break to look for an escapee dog's owner. I didn't pause the podcast while I did this but just carried on from where I picked it up again. My knees seem ok so fingers crossed.
Enough for one day I think! Hopefully all is well now and I am planning two days rest before my first park run with my daughter on Saturday!
