That is fantastic Ikle! I sometimes get the knee pain that doesn't happen, I've had it for years. It hurts my left knee when I'm stretching my right Hamstring. I am doing lots of balancing exercises on my left leg to keep it at bay. So far, touch wood, it hasn't affected my running.
10 miles @ Marathon pace this morning ... or that was the plan. I knew right away that it wasn't going to happen. After 1 mile I turned round and jogged home.
Just felt a bit tight at the top of my right leg and generally really lethargic and no energy at all. I know it is my body saying "take a rest" so I will. I have decided to make this week a light one and may even drop the long run so that I can really recover properly. Are you listening Susan?!
I have not felt totally comfortable in my last two runs (16 miles on Friday and 3.5 fast miles yesterday); I think I am probably expecting too much from my aging body. I need to reserve some energy, Mrs Road Runner is threatening to take me to IKEA!
