So this morning I completed my second run of week 4 and cannot believe I am running for 5 minute stints now... its tough going and I really have to push myself but I'm doing it!
The knee pain that started a couple of weeks back, is still there although bearable. After resting it for a few days last week (between week three and four) and having my gait analysed (and subsequently investing in a decent pair of running shoes) I'm still here and still going!!!
The shoes are helping for sure, my knee still aches a bit as I start my run but eases the further I go. It hurts afterwards (sort of at front and slightly to the right) but this morning when I got back and took 2 ibuprofen and that sorted me right out! That's obviously the way forward!!!
I can't believe I'm enjoying running, well I look forward to going and love the feeling after, during... not so much lol!
After living through the hardest few months of my life recently running is really boosting me and giving me a focus!
