Well last week I was really proud of myself. On Monday I ran 5k and then I did the same on Thursday. Then on Saturday I shocked myself by running for 40 mins and covering 5.6k.
Tonight I got home from work, changed into my gear and off I went into the snowy night. At first I thought I'd just do 20 mins as the snow was coming down quite hard but as I got into it I thought I could definitely do 30 mins if not 5k.
Then after about 10 mins the inside of my left knee started to niggle, it felt stiff and not quite right. I carried on for a couple more mins but decided I should stop. I limped back in the freezing cold. I'd been toasty warm whilst running but that soon wore off as I walked back home.
I'm hoping that with a rest day my knee will be ok by Wednesday. I'm thinking that my normal 5 minute warm-up wasn't enough in the present weather conditions.
Here's hoping I'll be back up and running later this week.
