Really missing running!!


Ankle still sore so very frustratingly waiting til it's healed before heading out again as I think I exacerbated it last time by running too soon. Will probably have to repeat week 5 when I do go out again.

Never thought I'd ever miss running but I really do!!! It has been so nice to find something that's just for me that gets me out of the house by myself. I'm a stay at home mum to a not quite 2 year old so it's been really nice and I'm missing it! Oh well, it'll teach me not to run on an injury, however slight in future.

You will get back to it... now you know that you have to listen to your body...:)

Heal soon and know we and the runs are still here:) x

I do and I will know for next time! Really felt that I was on a roll so disappointing to be out of action but hopefully not for long.

Thanks for your support :-)


You’ll be back soon... don’t rush it if it could be longer off. You’ll also be surprised how much fitness you’ve maintained... then you can smash week 5 again and onwards.

Thank you. It's frustrating but the fact that i feel that way is good as it means I'll be back with a vengeance once it's stopped hurting!

I’m nursing my second knee... right one spent a week in a brace and left one must have been jealous as it got the exact same problem very soon after. Nothing I wasn’t expecting with my history, but yes it’s frustrating. I’m tail walking at junior parkrun on Sunday so that’ll test it well.

Aww good luck with that! Hopefully we'll be back pounding those pavements before long!

We sure will. I’m expecting another couple of setbacks, but my knees are getting stronger so it won’t stop me.

Best to rest it. And it is important to get out of the house... what about a gentle walk? 😊

Just been for a long walk with my little girl so I'm exercising it. Feels a bit less sore today so hopefully I'll be back out there next week!

Sounds perfect 😊👍

Aww! Hope you recover soon and can restart 😊 the weather is cooling a bit now so runs are much nicer x x


Having any injury is frustrating 🤨 hope it heals soon for you 😀
