Week 9 run 3 completed 4th May

Four days before my 70th birthday. Only 3.37 km but a week later ran 4.5 in 40 minutes, now my knee is giving me trouble, just about ok now, so will start on the exercise bike and then hopefully back to running. As you all say it’s the running not the distance that matters, I’ve found this forum a great source of encouragement and advice, so thanks everyone 👍

Wow jethangar that's brilliant! You need to go claim your graduate badge - you've earned it. You're not far off the 5k now! Sounds like you're taking a break to nurse the knee - which sounds a good plan. I agree about this forum - amazing bunch of supportive people!
