Weekly round up: Back running

Running Happy weekly round up

I was back running this week!

After 10 weeks of not running and seeing my physio, I was allowed to walk/run a kilometer this week. And, boy, did it feel good to be out there!

I walked 200m then ran 200m for a total of 1.2km. It may not seem much but it is something to build on. I did have a bit of pain from my plantar fasciitis at first but it wore off as I ran a bit more. My physio has suggested building up slowly for the next three weeks and then to let her know how I get on. She thinks a slow build up will be okay and although I might have some pain to begin with it should ease off. Fingers crossed!
