Managed the 20 min run on Saturday without too much difficulty on the treadmill. Felt it went better than first time round as well.
Hospital visit this morning for the poorly knee. Could be one of two problems, or even two problems so being referred to physio to see if that helps a bit. But the good news is that if it is not too bad, I can keep running!! If physio does not help after 3-4 sessions, may need key hole investigative operation on it - but will worry about that later.
I was advised however, not to increase run timings at the moment until I can do that pain free and then to increase by no more than 10% a week. It may take me a few more weeks to get to graduation as planned and may have to invent my own running plan a bit, but hopefully I will suceed this time round.
So plan is - rest to day and tomorrow (Knee sore today from prodding, twisting and bending) and repeat the 20 min run on Wednesday. There is nothing to stop me trying to get a bit faster or further in the run if I feel able to do that!! (will still be doing the same time) Will then perhaps look at 2 rest days between each run to see how things go for a while.
So happy to be able to do this again!! Can't believe how much I missed it.
