So, it's been 3 (or possibly 4) weeks since I graduated at my first and only park run. 2 weeks since I saw physio for first time about my dodgy knees and achilles.
Was banned from running and given a heap of exercises to do. 2nd visit on Saturday and knees have improved and work started on achilles but still no running allowed.
This put me in a bit of a quandary as I'd signed up to run 30 miles in may for macmillan. I'd managed 6 before I hit the IC. So it was quite clear that even delaying the rest of the runs into June may not solve the problem. So I came up with a different challenge.
I asked my lovely sponsors if the would mind if I split the remaining 24 miles into 2 walks which will complete on the bank holiday weekend. I did the first walk today and it was 14 miles. It took me 5.5 hours but it was the furthest I've ever walked and it was fab.
Maybe I won't ever be a runner again but I'm definitely a walker 👣👣👣
