|Not good news! |
On Saturday I managed to run 14km, and have now run every day for nearly two weeks. Although not out of the woods, health-wise, it's time to get back to normal. "Normal" includes weighing myself regularly and trying to stay at, or below, 68kg. Not only do I feel healthier at that weight (and my clothes fit better), but it reduces the chances of injury. I do have a chronic right knee problem (see post titled Adaptation), and it has been quite sore since I resumed running. I firmly believe that weighing less will alleviate some of the strain.
|Much faster and lighter at Croydon in the UK in 1975. |
My 5km run was a little faster and more comfortable this morning, though my right knee hurt and I'm still running slowly.
