Right, just caught up with all the new posts, sounds like everyone is doing really well! I know what you all mean about people looking, I am so self-conscious about that too . But I suppose whenever I see a runner I just think "good on them" so I tell myself that people might be thinking that too and not actually laughing at me! I am getting less bothered by it the more I run though.
Knees are still sore, it's doing my head in! Thought that rest would help but it seems to flare up again whenever I walk too much or run. I have no idea what is causing it or if I should keep pushing through in the hope that more runs will strengthen my legs and get them used to it. I wish I could just tell them that there's no point in being sore because the running isn't going to stop so they might as well be quiet and not complain!
Ankles are a bit sore also, same sort of pain as knees so I'm hoping it's just tight muscles or something and not actual injuries. I bought a foam roller today so will be giving that a go.
Hope everyone is having a good week and enjoying their runs
