I went out this morning in the cold cold winter's air and did a 5k run. I did it in 31.10 which is not great but it's the first time I've run that distance in at least 6 months.
I was wearing a patella strap which was uncomfortable after about 2k, but a slight adjustment and it went fine.
I will have some stiff legs in the morning but I have no knee pain so that's all good.
If I can do a decent 10k this year I will be very happy!
