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.
