Evening all - knees feeling better

Week 9 run 2, seems that it has been a long time even though I only rested for an additional two days. been using 'Deep Freeze Gel' on my knees, good stuff but smells of menthol.

I watched some videos on 'YouTube' about running form and even one about tying your laces properly, I have changed my running style ensuring I land correctly and not thump my feet down. Wearing shorts and t shirt now as it is a lot warmer so not overheating. :-)

So I ran slower and did not cover 5k and my pace was down to 7.5, but I completed the run without pain (just a dull ache) which is what matters to me.

I am going for a swim tomorrow morning and will decide if I will do run three on Sunday or wait until my normal Monday run.

Have a lovely weekend all
