Just been thinking, if you think I need 4 days running or 5 days or 2 days whatever, I will go with the plan. I dont have much time because of this injury so what ever it takes without causing another repeat injury :

12km done on the LSR. Stretched and iced my knees just in case. No pain whilst running, hope no pain tomorrow if there isnt I am back and fighting fit.

Felt good, but with the temperature drop it made it easier, however I was not eating or drinking well yesterday so a double bonus that the run felt good.

Ready for my next weeks plan now as I not quite sure where to go from here besides gradually extending the LSR.

6 weeks today is the GNR - argh.

An interesting run for an Easy Run. I started off correctly then as I felt good I decided to gradually speed up to a fast pace for me at 5.30 and then slow down again. I admit I know I should not have done it but my knee was great and I wanted to give myself some confidence that I can still get to the speeds I need. Although for half marathon 7.00 all the way round will be great now.

I enjoyed it to be honest but know I was naughty. 

Sunday 10km maybe 12km LSR.

You on target for your 7km run on Monday?

That was indeed the last bike ride until literally the last hour. My new data is now up for tonights ride which was little longer and which seemed a little easier. I was going to ride on Monday but my knee was sore, it is fine now.

Definately getting there.

7km for you on Monday, wow that is a big jump, seems like your rehab is going very well now. You have been pretty patient as you must have been out for what seems like 9 months or so?

anyone use energy gels

Maybe i have not run far enough yet, but when running 18km I took one around 12km, cant really say I felt a difference. I need to experiment more with them yet as the obviously seem to do a lot of good. Maybe my run simply was not long enough.

Knee is good this morning. No real reaction from last nights run. Feeling positive as this is the best it has felt since the start of my troubles. Ready to push with Fridays run.
