Off the Injury Couch :)

I posted a few weeks ago about the excrutiating pains in my knees having just completed week 2. Turned out to be swelling under the knee caps, not pleasant, thankfully ibuprofen did the trick. Last week after 2 weeks out I redid a week 2 run successfully πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜† and this morning i was going to do another week 2 run, but i though -hang on... no, i am ready. So i had a go at a week 3 run and i'm chuffed as nuts to have completed it, and even happier that i didnt have ANY pain in my feet. The 1st 2 weeks i struggled with pain in my feet quite badly however now i'm wondering if that was the stop start method of weeks 1 and 2.

Cant wait to do my 2nd week 3 run!

  • Just go very slowly and you should avoid injury from now on. Going slow is really important as your body needs time to adjust

    Hopefully you can crack on and finish the job. Take care.

  • Well done , glad your aches and pains are behind you , as missw says slow and steady is the way to go, your body is slowly adjusting to your new regime , stick with it you will be just fine :)

  • Brilliant! Good news to be off the injury couch, well done for cracking your week 3run, keep it up :)

  • Great news that you are back and running. Hope there is no more pain and enjoy the rest of the program

  • Thanks all. Slow is definitely the magic key for me :). Planned to go out this evening but the gales are out in force and i'd rather as few obstacles in the way as possible! Hope tomorrow is better.
