Week 1 rerun

I did it. I managed to redo week 1. I feel great. My knee is not so happy.

It wasn't a good run, I was stiff and needed to relax into it more but I completed it. As for my knee - it completed it too! Though it did complain a bit and I had to nurse it through. I have put an ice pack on it and some ibuprofen gel so hopefully it will be ok. Just have to see how it feels in the morning. With luck I will be running again on Monday.

Viki :-)

All the best for Monday. (((((knee))))) It must be so hard restarting - at least you're not alone, and there have been some very encouraging blogs about restarters on here recently.

Just go really gently until the knee understands that it needs to behave. :)

So happy you were able to get out for a run, Viki! Its frustrating when our body parts won't corporate with what we want to do! Still sending healing thoughts your way! Gayle
