I've only gone and run 5K!!
I hadn't managed to fit three runs in last week with the heat and working all hours, so was determined today was going to be a good run. Yesterday I sorted a playlist out and secretly decided on the route.
This morning, 6 am, I set off with Hubby going to catch me up. I shouted over my shoulder "I'm going down the village then up over the bridge down to Thorpe" The look on his face was a picture, the bridge over the A46 is a bit steep!!
He eventually caught up with me, never said a word just pedalled along beside me.
When I'd run this way before it was to the third telegraph pole then turn round. I was feeling good so kept going just glancing at my watch, thinking I'm going to try 5 k today, turn round at 20 minutes should be long enough, that took me nearly to the windmill so to the windmill I ran. Turned round, Hubby says "mm you've gone a lot further today", little did he know.
Up over the bridge, feeling good, knee twinging a bit Hubby noticed and told me to stop - no chance I was on a mission. Kept going, went further than I thought, again. Checked the time.... 33:43 for 5K woohoo done it!! What a feeling!!
Don't know if it was my music or just that I was ready for a bit longer? Oops I didn't miss Laura!!
The only problem is that now my knee is quite painful going down stairs, not sure what I've done but after resting it most of the day it's feeling much better.
UPDATE: Rested knee on Sunday, went to bed early and it was still feeling a bit sore. Got up Monday not even a twinge!! Did behave and have a steady day doing nothing much.
Went for a run 5.30 this morning, another 5k, not a twinge until I turned to come back, running on the opposite camber of path/road started it niggling just a bit. I think it must be the way I'm running, need to get my gait checked soon.
Thanks for your positive vibes
Keep on running!!
