Got out for a much needed light run today. After the highs of the last few weeks I've really needed to slow down - not out of choice either. If I'm honest since very early on in the programme I've been nursing a poorly knee My left knee has always been weak since falling from a tree when I was 17. I've kept running even through the pain (which I know is silly) as the running bug really took a hold of me. I've finally listened to friendly advice and hadn't run since last Tuesday - even though this has made me so sad.
I wanted to test how the knee was bearing up so decided to go back to week 6 run 1 so as to have some walking in between. Gingerly I ran with a few twinges but it felt so good to be out again. I've RICEd it since coming home but the real test will be later and tomorrow when it's had time to settle down. Maybe I'll stick to week 6 for a little while and see how I feel for a possible light jog on Thursday.
