I've fallen behind on my runs unexpectedly. However it can't be helped, the change in weather seems to have set my knees feeling funny and so I've taken extra days off to make sure I don't injure. Yesterday I did my first run of week 7, back along the coast today except that almost the entire time I was fighting the wind, dodging sea spray and trying to talk with some of my family who decided to tag along on this. It was an experience! I find that as long as I keep it slow (and I'm not going uphill) I can breathe fine and all. My knees felt fine throughout the run, when I stopped the left one felt weird again but not as bad as last time. The only way to describe the sensation is the muscle trying to fold on itself just below the knee cap? After an extended walk of about 10 minutes it went away.
Also I've joined up to Chase the Sun after some encouragement from runner folk at work so will be doing that on the 31st August. I'm currently doing around 3.35k on my runs and Chase the Sun is 5k. I doubt I'll run the extra distance... So that leads me to think, should I do intervals?
