So last week I kept rowing indoors and walking, as my knees hurt so much that I struggle to carry my own weight. Tomorrow I will call the GP and started ibuprofen. In just 2 weeks it's the Brighton marathon opening event, a 10k route that I am in. I really want to do it even if I have to walk and be forced to stop if I'm out of time, but even walking seems to kill my knee. I feel a bit like a failure, but making exercise an everyday routine, such as eating, makes me forgive myself in such times. I am everyday at Preston park with my sons so if anybody is around and wants to catch up and arrange a veeeery slow run together, please let me know. It may help us cope better as a team.
