Huffed and Hobbled but Home :)

Had to decide today wether this pain in my knee would allow me to run.. W8r1 was a day late already.. been resting and icing..and gentle excercise.. took on board as much advice as I could.. 

But decided GO out and give it a go.. So close to graduation.. I know I'm not in a hurry to finish it but feel so strong otherwise.. :)

Took it really slow and ten mins in it was easing.. kept it really slow.  Kept repeating that in my head..rather complete with my knee able to compete another day !

So happy I managed..and wait now and see how it bears up during today and rest day tomorrow ;)

Had to ask the Rignold for some advice.. So thanks again big man.. Will promise to be good and listen to your wise words.. :)

All being well though..w8r2 on Friday:)

  • Good for you..but go first run today..after a week with crocked knee..don't push too hard🙂

  • Thanks oldfloss.. I won't.. going to take two rest days between and do some strength and flex.. x hope you are enjoying your holiday x

  • I am..first run went okay..cycled a bit too.

    You are being sensible🙂

  • Fingers crossed all is good with your knee, definitely  rest and see how it feels before running again . 

  • Take care Sparky. Running will wait if you are feeling pain.  x

  • I share your pain! My knees are really sore too, I've put off running this morning because of it, which is frustrating because I have enough time and it's not chucking it down.

    Did you do anything special to help? I've been slathering them in ibuprofen gel at night (Mr W is a very lucky man!) but I'm not sure if it's helping or not.

    I'm aiming for W8R2 tomorrow or Friday, then off to France, so I'll miss your graduation run :o(

  • Hi Pam.. Ooh I think I'm going to have to take time out till my knee is much better..took ibrufien and paracetamol before the run... and then later on in the felt not bad... till I woke at 2am thismorning for a pee.. and could hardly walk ..was much worse :(   was planning on taking two rest days.. but the way I feel now..I'm not going to chance any further injury :( hopefully yours will not be as bad.. I fear my graduation may be a lot further than planned :( so gutted as I am really enjoying this.. 

    You take it easy and don't be as daft as me.. if your in pain.. don't run.. 

    Enjoy France..  .. x have a brilliant time.. let's hope we both on the ment for your return.. x

  • awww, you poor thing, I don't think your pain level sounds "normal" if you know what I mean. GP job? Chin up chuck x

  • I know the sight of the finish line is very tempting but you don't want to fall right before crossing it, do you? So be extra careful with your knee. ;)

    Be extra careful also with Rig's advices; I'm still not sure whether he is a human and whether his advices are suitable for normal people... XD
