Despite warnings from several people to take it easy on my knee, two weeks ago, I trudged back to the gym to attempt to run again… my knee was not having any of it and start to hurt even more. Damn it! I was such a grumpy moo… all I wanted to do was get back on it!
With the help of my rather awesome HoMedics Shiatsu Massager, special gel and lots of tablets, I was finally able to summon up the courage to attempt again last week. It worked!!!! I was back running and felt fantastic again. The scales were working in my favour, my knee was holding out and I was feeling optimistic to start back again this week.
I have just returned from the gym now, still slightly red of face – but I have managed another 30 minutes! Even with increasing my walking and running speed by .2! This may have had something to do with being surrounded by good looking men today… and some stick insect who carried on running… the uber competitive Sim broke free and carried on running!
Recently I was sent an awesome pair of Yurbuds Inspire Women Earphones to help me on my running journey. Not only are they a funky purple colour (my favourite colour), but they also stay in my ears without having to rearrange them constantly. This is down to the very comfortable, TwistLock Technology and FlexSoft Comfort Fit guarantee the sweat-proof-in-the-ear sport earphones will never hurt or fall out of your ears. I love them – the range of earphones is great, I would happily recommend these to fellow runners! In fact, the Talk For Women Yurbuds have just ranked Gold in the Women’s Running Magazine!
I am going to attempt to fit in another 2 runs this week and work up to the 2nd week of Couch to 5K now that my knee has healed. Hopefully I will start to notice a difference in the scales, my fitness and how well clothes fit very soon if I keep to running 3 times a week… here is to Wednesday! 🙂
