We’ll if you’ve been reading you’ll be aware that I have started running, if you actually know me than this will come as a shock. Mainly due to the fact that I am a lazy bastard, who tried to never break a sweat. So what possessed me to take it up? Well the answer to that is competitiveness, I couldn’t let my mate out do me, so if he was running then so was I, one a similar vein he gave up smoking as well.
Anyway the idea was easy, however the implementation was a little sketchier, I know I have a bad knee so before starting got a knee brace. Mainly so I stop any injury re-occurring, however despite only running for a few weeks my right knee seems to have been in absolute agony, to the extent that it was painful walking across the front room. It then dawned on me that I was my right leg that had the injury not the left that I have been putting the knee brace on!
Now for those that know me this will not come as a surprise, for those who don’t know me, let me just tell you this is typical Mark behaviour! Anyway now I am strapping up the right leg rather than the wrong one I am hoping that the running becomes less painful!
