After having 4 days off with a bad cold I completed week 4 run 1 this evening. My knees felts as though they had aged 20 years since my last run and it took me till the second 3 minute run to start to get into the groove.
I have been quite apprehensive about running for 5 minutes, but although shattered and running at a snails pace, i didn't feel like I was on my last legs at the end.....I know I can run further.
It was nice to do more running than walking today...I always seem to see people that I know when I'm on the walking sections, looking like a lazy bum rather than a 'runner'!
I am starting to feel a few little niggles now however with twinges in my right knee and ankle once I start the cool down walk...I'm hoping this is just caused by the cross over from running to walking?
Roll on run two! Hopefully a bit quicker than today!
