The knee goes out to play

Took the knee, along with the rest of me to run club tonight. 8.5 miles on Winter Hill and not a twinge, well OK it went ooh a bit up one climb which was short and steep. Its normally running downhill that sets it off and all was well on the descending. Be interesting to see how it feels in the morning.

Nothing like starting back gently ;)

It was all at quite a gentle pace, I think I'd have taken more of a pounding if I'd gone with the road runners, even the slower group moves at a fair pace and tarmac isn't as forgiving as boggy moorland. :0)

No tarmac is mean, I ran on tarmac on tuesday and was up at 1am icing my knee! But sometimes it has to be done.

I know how my legs would feel after 8.5 miles up/down a hill and I don't think ooh would properly describe it.

I reckon you just wanted more mini eggs.

I resisted more mini eggs!

Good news on the knee, hope all is well today. I find steep uphill can annoy my IT band as my knee can move inwards as I take steps up (weak inner knee muscles), so its not just downhill, though hard downhill just finishes it off completely.

Julbags -feels fine this morning thanks. The uphill where it twinged a bit yesterday was seriously steep, I had my hands on the ground too in a couple of places. Luckily it was only short!

I think I'm more familiar now with what the early symptoms of it starting are and so can hopefully manage it a bit better. I'm arranging to start having sports massages, physio thinks that will help keep everything loose.
