Why aren't there parkruns in France, Germany, Spain, Italy etc?

There are parkruns in Australia

I Didn't Quite Expect That!

I'm not a Dr, physio etc but I would give it a go if I was in your situation and see what happens. I would start with short slow runs on soft ground and keep an eye on the knee. If the pain does not return I would be delighted and if it gets bad again at least I would have tried it and got an answer.
But that's just my personal opinion and not the one of a medical professional.

Well done on stopping smoking and losing weight! Just get out there tomorrow and enjoy yourself. I also doubt you will be last with your time but the most important thing is to have fun. So go and do it. You have done all this training so please don't doubt yourself. You will feel great crossing that finish line. Good luck and let us know how you got on.

Training going well, injury free and up to 13.1 mile trail run in week 3.

Good to hear that you are still enjoying your running and that you are listening to your body and moved the goal from 8 to 10-ish weeks. It's still a short time to built up to 20 miles so please continue to listen to your body and don't push too hard.

Xcracer, how is the training going? Have you gone further than 13.1 miles yet?

Yipeeeeeee I've done my first `10k

Screama, seren, how else is he going to built up to a 20 miles run in 8 weeks if he is not doing every run longer?. ...unless it has changed since he was warned about it in a previous thread

To OP, great to hear that you are still enjoying your running

Avoiding needing a number 2 while running?

I found that going lactose free helped me avoiding trouble on my runs. For events I still take immodium but since going lactose free it was also better for my last HM. Good luck in finding out what works for you. It's not nice having these problems when you are running.

This all seems too good to be true

You got some very good advise there. You are very keen which is good but please listen to your body. 20 miles in 8 weeks is a hugh ask for your body which will put you at risk for injury, let alone trying to do it at the pace you are aiming for. Your body needs time to adapt especially as you just started running.

The good old days

Thinking back, my primary school (for 6-10 year olds) didn't have a fence. Once classes were over we would just make our own way home and the parents didn't have to pick us up. We would also make our own way to school and not getting dropped off by our parents. The other kids would take the piss if they saw you being dropped off by your parents. I normally cycled the 3k to school as there was no bus from our house to the school. Haven't been back for a closer look for years so can't confirm if they put a fence up in the meantime.
