I haven't blogged for so long but that's changing. I've been running regularly, despite having knee problems and having lost my expensive running shoes ) : I stopped using them as I had a recurrence of soft tissue problems above my toes, and went back to my trusty, at least 4 year old Hi Tecs. My knees are up and down(!!!),the left in particular, but strangely, they don't normally hurt once they've 'warmed up'. Last Friday, I ran 3.47 miles with my daughter who's training for a half marathon.She was much quicker than me, so, for me, it was a fast run.When she left me to carry on a bit further, I had a few yards to do but my left knee was quite painful. She thinks I shouldn't run, but I like the fact that I go out, run, come home, and it's done.Any road up, I thought I'd try my new trainers again, and they've disappeared! I can't think where I can have left them. I'm going crazy trying to find them, so I may have to give up running for a while, and spring clean the house in case the dog has hidden them!
