A couple of years ago I managed to run 5k on a tradmill, but my knee got sore, and only managed to do it a couple of times. Over the last two years, every time ive reached a certain point my knee has started to hurt. This time i was determined it was going to be different!
Ive been running on grass, using a running technique that stops over striding and heel striking. And still now and then i end up with sore knees.
Right through the four months of training, ive took it nice and slow. Towards the end, i stopped short of the 5k.
Yesterday I completed my first parkrun and done the slightly longer than 5k, at 31mins 53 seconds
Im the one getting lapped......
