At a&e, pain just got unbareable! They diagnosed medial ligament tears both knees, and I'm hobbling around on crutches and off my face on codeine I've honestly never known pain like it!

I'm doing the couch to 5k programme so aiming towards a 5k initially.... Once I can do that I'd love to dream about a half marathon... The way things are at the moment tho I can't imagine running ever again!
The Belfast wether isn't too forgiving either, but I've discovered something weirdly nice about running in the rain!

Just realised that somehow my first post has a chunk missing!
It should say that it's not so much my actual kneecaps, but a strip along the inside which is very sore to touch, swollen and almost bruised looking.
