Take No Chances

Circle HopIt’s Saturday, which means it’s Virtual Running UK Blog Hop Day, and for once I managed to get a run in!

Today was Week 1 Day 2 of Couch to 5K. To be fair, I should have done this one earlier in the week, but after Monday’s session my leg wasn’t feeling great, so I decided to listen to my body, not take any chances, and waited until the discomfort subsided before running again.

This morning, the leg felt a lot better. It’s still not 100%, but I’m starting to think that it might never be and, if I want to keep running, I’m just going to have to learn to live with it. As long as I don’t push it too hard, it should be ok.

So, today I decided to keep the running sections a bit slower than on Monday, and it seemed to work. I felt pretty good and the leg doesn’t feel any worse, so that’s a good sign.

I’m hoping to finish off Week 1 tomorrow morning, but I’ll see how it goes. There’s no point in rushing it as chances are it will only set me back again, but I’m in no hurry. It’s just nice to be able to get back out there again, even if it is only for a couple of Ks.

How’s your running going? How do you deal with old injuries and niggles? Please share your thoughts in the comments.

It’s a tough call!
