After my latest injury (knee injury caused by running, one painful month to heal) I said I'd never run again. I had been running downhill when the injury first happened and since it didn't hurt, I carried on. BIG MISTAKE. There followed several painful weeks of hobbling around and anti-inflammatories.
I didn't intend to run today, but thought I'd go for a gentle walk along the river as I'd been unable to do that since the injury... well, 10 minutes into my walk and it was perfect conditions for a little jog so I just couldn't help myself... just lovely!
My energy levels are settled and I feel so well again. And no new knee problems, no ankle problems, no back problems. I still did a lot of the route walking, and only ran in the areas where the ground was level - but it was so lovely to be running a little again! Ok, in future 'No running on the slopes...'
Fitness hope after thyroid hell!
I hope you've had a blessed weekend too, whatever you've been doing.
