Hi, I have arthritis in my knees and feet, I have just recovered from a knee injury back in July. I have just done my 2nd ‘run’ of week 1 but my knee was not stable enough the first run so I felt a bit disheartened. Today I was brave and managed one 60 second hobble ha! I am not giving up so I guess my in between days from rinning will be strength training! Hey if I can do it anyone can!!
