Well I was a bit nervous today as I haven't run since last Friday due to a combination of beyond-my-control time management issues. But I felt like a run (this is absolutely a first for me!) and the sun was shining, so out I went.
Since my early-october ankle sprain, I have been gradually getting back into the swing by repeating week 9. Well, I've really had enough of you and Julie (week 9'ers will know what I mean!). So I dug out the Stepping Stones podcast. To my surprise it went absolutely fine, and I even enjoyed it! Ankle and knee both feel fine (an advantage of the enforced rest is that my knee has stopped complaining). This is enormously encouraging.
I still ran only about 3.5km though. I guess I'll have to start digging out "speed" and "stamina" as well if I'm going to do that 5k park run in any sort of decent time (they stop recording at 45 mins apparently!). Still, not bad for a fat old bird.
Happy running everyone!
