Pulled up short at 3.1 miles (5K) on my four mile easy run. I was trying to ease back gently after my knee gave me trouble in the evening after my 8+ miles on Sunday afternoon. Sooo disappointed as was really hoping three days off running would have helped, but two miles in it started to twinge in the same place as it was hurting on Sunday evening. Then it really started to hurt as I persisted on at least trying to get to 5K. I hobbled home. The Garmin time reflects the pain in mile two and three.
Am now sitting with ice on it and I think it's going to be at least a week before I dare run again...if not two. It's the most frustrating thing as I need to be keeping my fitness up for the August 10k and now I'm worrying about my Truro Half Marathon! I think the swimming pool might see me back there for a session or two.
Knees! You and Grammadog are suffering. I have found a really useful book called 'Running Well' by Sam Murphy and Sarah Connors. It has a flow chart of he different types of knee pain and suggestions for strengthening muscles etc. Might be worth a look if you don't know why you're getting pain but if it's bad may be doc time?
