No running for nearly 3 months, following a knee problem that hit after week 9 run 1, so have started off very carefully again. Last friday, it was a 30 minute brisk walk with just 2.5 minutes of running and then on Saturday, the same, but this time with 5 minutes of running. All felt good, so on Sunday, I went for the first run of week 5, (3 x 5 min runs) and I did it! and so far (touching wood) no problem! Rest day yesterday and planning to do the 2nd run of week 5 this evening. I am normally a morning runner, so will be interesting to see how I get on.
Felt really good to be back running again. Due to the knee, I have been doing these runs on the treadmill - in the comfort of my living room, just in case I do hit a problem. I have an appointment at the hospital next week about my knee, but am hopeful now that it is not so bad as I first thought, when I could hardly walk.
