Went on my first run this morning in a few weeks after my knee playing up, it was so nice to finally get outside and run! I did the first run of week 3 from C25K which was run for 90 secs, walk for 90 secs, run for 3 minutes, walk for 3 minutes x2. So I only ran for 9 minutes total but who cares, I got out for a run and had no pain!
Not the smoothest of runs but at least it was a run - I put my phone the wrong way round in my arm holder so had to work my phone from upside down, I accidentally pulled out my headphones so I had to fumble about with those trying to plug them back into my phone and try and get my music back on too! It was almost as though my body half-forgot how to run as well, I felt a bit rusty and didn't move as well as I usually do before my injury. Anybody else know what I'm talking about? And I have definitely lost a bit of fitness too, I ran up one of my usual hills but I was more out of breath than I usually was hahaha! It was lovely weather though, brilliant sunshine!
My left knee held up though so I am pleased that I finally had a pain-free run, on the road to recovery! So now I have really got to be careful not to push it too far now and just be patient which is easier said than done most of the time!
