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.
