What a difference a year makes, last year it Â was cold and dull for the GEAR 10kÂ Run,Â I ran with an injury and it was hard, this year it was sunny and hot, I had no injury and I loved it 🙂
1700 runners took part and the atmosphere was brilliant,crowds of people lined the streets cheering you on at every corner.
There was a time last year when I thought myÂ Achilles would never get better and I would never run again but eventually around Christmas time I started back with some gentle runs.
Then I joined The Lynnsport Ladybirds running club,at first I found it hard especially as I was used to running on my own,but I soon settled in and for the first time ever I started to meet people from around Kings Lynn.
I was soon back up to running 6 miles but was veryÂ paranoidÂ about myÂ Achilles, it does ache at times but thankfully I have learnt to rest it between runs and the aching soon goes away.
This run was amazing for me, I am so happy to be back running, I want to run longer distance but must confess that I am scared I may upset myÂ AchillesÂ again and I dont want any more injuries!
and if anyone has any tips on how toÂ strengthenÂ myÂ Achilles then please let me know 🙂
