So I started with a bang, but then life happened as it does! Well not exactly life because that's always happening right? But I did get busy! I swear! Not only that but on my last long run, at about the 5km mark, my knee was in a lot of pain! I had to stop, its now been a little over a week and I have not run. This of course has meant I have not been burning as much calories and although I have not weighed myself.....I know this also means MORE weight. Ill know the damage in the morning when I check out the scales. But if there is one thing that I have learnt from distance running its not to ignore your body, if it hurts its trying to tell you something and you SHOULD listen. Last year I ignored pain in my feet and could not train for a good month. For some one with ADHD (joking......kind of) that is anguish! So I still have about 6-7 weeks to go, I have run a few 20km runs before the knee problem. So I should be ok. This friday Ill start again and see how I go.
