My running was going to well, I was running 28 minutes without any walking breaks at all, it felt so good. Then after three 28-minute runs my left knee started to ache… and then my right foot started to hurt even when I walked… oops. Apparently I over pronate, which I didn’t even know what it was but I must be doing it because it hurts!
I bought some orthopaedic insoles (oh I feel old) and I have been walking with them until I feel ready to run again. I had to miss what was going to be my second 5k race, I was pretty annoyed. I see all these people running in the nice 20C weather and I actually feel a pang of jealousy, who would have thunk it?
Any tips for injured newbies like me?
PS Did anyone watch this TV programme on the BBC about self-monitoring? It blew my mind!
