Oh no , I hope it's not damaged. Do you use a brace or some kind of support on it when you run? Hope it mends quickly for you! Robin did you stretch before your last run and after? That is an important thing we all need to remember to do, with these longer runs we could hurt or injure ourselves. Will be sending you healing thoughts across the pond!!!
We will be waiting to hear the details. Wishing you the best, and hoping the rain holds off. It's been raining here everyday it seems. You got this.Cardiochick wrote:Starting it today. Eek!!!
I did my 28 min run today. The rain was real bad so I did it on the treadmill, setting the incline to 1. thanks for that advice.
The 3 added minutes went ok. I mean, really, we've already done an amazing 25 min so what's 3 more? Haha. "Clare " made me a little mad at the end. You know how she counts down in 5 min intervals? Well, at the last 3 min she says, "you have only 3 min to go", which translated to me " if you were on the last run of wk 7, you' d be done now". . ...
I hope that y'all feel differently than I did about that. Maybe I'm running too much. I am going to take a small break now cause I have double 12 1/2 hour shifts coming up. Next run will be Tues.
I can't wait to hear how everyone does with their 28 min run!!
Yes, you CAN DO THIS!!!! Woo-hoo!! Week 8!!!!!!
Awe that is a bummer, but try and think positive. You have come a long way in such a short time. Has this knee ever did this before? Do I remember you saying the other knee was the bad one? Take it easy!Mr Nibbler wrote:Walked the dog this morning and the knee was painful - tried a few running steps and doing W8R1 today is not an option. I hope to get back to it tomorrow or Tuesday. Looks like graduating on my birthday is not going to be a reality. Bummer.
How has everyone's weekend been?
