Thanks for all the great advice and support, I’ve iced and elevated on and off for 24 hours and this morning I had no pain until 28 minutes in (don’t get me wrong, if it was painful at the beginning I’d never have carried on). Still wasn’t too bad so pushed through and now I’m icing again. Reluctant to take pain killers as I’d rather know if I’m in pain rather than mask it but we’ll see.
Anyway, now the positive, ran for 30 mins, the rain actually pushed me into going out, how sad is that?! I actually LOVE running in the rain (as I sit here shivering while posting, rather than going for a shower!) - really was a good run, slightly slower than run 1 at 4.64 rather than 4.68 but at least I know it wasn’t a fluke now and I’m on my way to 5K. 🎉
If you haven’t run yet today, go - have a good one and most of all, stay positive! 💪🏼
