I currently have PFPS – Patello Femoral Pain Syndrome.
My left knee is not tracking right. So it was Awesome to tape my knee and run through the pain and make that distance!
The task was hard work and we ran over 33km of the distance then Emma’s knee hurt pretty bad for some reason (her turn for the physio) so we did some walking as not to risk injury.
We felt we could have run another 3 – 5km’s of that if Em’s knee didn’t play up and taken 1/2 an hour off the time but I’m really just happy we made it!
I decided to throw up at the 32km mark as I had too much red Powerade sloshing around in my stomach LOL!!!
I burnt over 2,500 calories and I’ve just had a lovely 2.5hr nap plus the legs feel okay (so far, see how they are tomorrow)!
The picture below is from Runkeeper , our iPhone GPS plotted out our course.
The picture (top right) is our next Marathon in a month.
42.2km on the ‘Great Wall of China’ + 5,164 steps ….. YEOW I can’t wait!!!!!
That one should test us!
