My knee still hurts, woe is me! My friend Becky, who’s a physio, thinks it’s “runner’s knee” – I looked it up online and it certainly sounds like the kind of discomfort I’m feeling, so there’s nothing to be done but rest 😦
So in terms of running, the rest of this week is a write-off – I’ll see how my leg feels at the weekend and will maybe give parkrun a go on Saturday if it feels OK. Hope I can get my marathon plan back on track!
But, I still have to do my Juneathon activity, which means I have to get a bit more creative, so today I went for a swim for the first time in ages!
I’m not a brilliant swimmer – I mean, I can swim quite a long way, but I’m not technically very good. I blame this on the fact that when I had swimming lessons at primary school, I’d just had an ear operation, which meant I couldn’t get water in my ears. Consequently I only ever learned how to do breast-stroke without putting my head underwater. I do put my head under water now actually, but still only do breast-stroke or occasionally backstroke – I’m useless at crawl!
I did 60 lengths of my local pool, which is only 20 m long, so *quick mental calculation* that’s 1200 m in 45 minutes. My knee was a little bit twingey on the kicks but not too bad.
