Running again

Postby mango » Thu Jan 19, 2006 4:13 pm

I started running again this week. I used to run on the South Downs a couple of times a week, til I left Brighton. I've been running round the Town Moor in Newcastle every day, including the two little hills. Last time I tried to start running I had knee tendon problems but this time, running on grass, it's alright. Will start doing 2 laps next week! Running really makes me feel better.

running on grass and on diferent sides off the road can do little miracles..

also some knee excersices to increase the strength around your knee can help.

I had a knee problem 3 years ago and went to a fysio for 3 months..

it helped!!

good luck..

try to build it up slowly..

Had a great run today. Lovely sunny winter's day. I've been running pretty slowly so far to get back into fitness. Towards the end of my run, I decided to let myself go a little faster and found I'd recovered that wonderful feeling where my feet are pulling me along, power from the hips, not pushing myself but letting my body run. Looking forward to tomorrow - may do 1.5 laps of the Town Moor instead of just 1.

Yes. I'm convinced that there is a conspiracy.. There is a large group of people who say 'running is great!' and 'i get a runners high' and other stories like this...but what they do is get other people to run.....to watch them suffer.

I never see any of these people running themselves.

Lies. Foul lies.

How's the running coming along Mango. Good luck with it!

Dave: you get the best runners high if you get up at 4am and run in the cold/rain/<any other bad weather> It's true, honestly. ;)
