Dammit!

Not a happy bunny

Ok this was my only run of the week and maybe I put too much hope in the acupuncture and yes I should be happy I got out and did a run but… that hurt!

I set out to do a steady 25 minutes but I didn’t get to half way before I had a walk break.

I was tired and although my calves were tight there was new pain in the outside of my right knee.

As well as the physio treatment I have been stretching as suggested and have been concentrating on my calves and my hamstrings.  I am not sure if I have over done it or whether this is part of the treatment but that run was uncomfortable.

I did complete the exercises after the run and the hamstring stretches were particularly hard as my legs were twitching as I was stretching 😔  My very good friend Paul (Captain fit), has given me an alternative suggestion for the hamstrings which I may try this afternoon.

I have physio tomorrow so will see what she advises.  I do want to try and have a couple short runs this week but I am in training for two long days which kind of takes away quite some time from my week 😔

Still I got out there and whatever the outcome I have been for a run.

Stats on Strava as usual.

    Oh no. That doesn’t sound good. I hope the physio can help tomorrow and definitely tell them about the pain on the outside of the knee – could be IT band so worth checking out. Well done for getting out there though, and I’m sure the next one will be better. xx

      Thank you. I’m sure it’s part of the treatment. Fingers crossed.
