Hey all .. hope you're managing to get out and run safely in this cold weather. Today is sunny but frosty here and I was really looking forward to my run.
After just a few minutes, my achilles ached (that's never happened to me in the C25K program). I carried on, hoping it would shake out. Then the aching moved down lower into my heel bone area. So I stopped, stretched and loosened my trainer a bit. On I ran and that seemed to have done the trick. But when I'd just reached 3K, my knee started twinging! And all this was on the right side - so I told myself to be sensible and turned around and walked home. Sigh.
Better to be safe than sorry I guess. I wonder if it could be the cold?? or the fact that I"ve upped my distances in the last few weeks and done some 6 and a 7 k run.
Fingers crossed i'll be all better on my next outing!
