A round up

Time has been tight over the last few days, but not too tight as to interrupt my running - just the time to blog about it. So in summary, I took a rest day on Wednesday, Thursday was a hilly fartlek session of 7 miles with uphill efforts and 2 long flat efforts. At the end of which I felt things are now starting to come together again as although tired I had worked hard and felt strong throughout. Friday, however, saw a recurrence of the knee pain in both knees, but thankfully this time no swelling, so an easy 5 miles was the order of the day.

Saturday, although the knees still painful, I did 7 miles with the middle 3 at tempo. This was followed on Sunday with a steady 15, bringing the weekly total to 47 miles.

Hopefully, this week I will be able to increase the mileage while avoiding any further knee problems.

Any clues as to what is causing the knee problem, Alan? Are you icing to relieve the pain?

Think it is an overuse injury due to where marority of pain is - outside of thigh and into knee likely to be illoibal band. Am icing knee and due to go on holiday soon which with reduced mileage will give chance of recovery - well at least that is the plan
