First post here since September :( . That knee pain was a torn meniscus in the knee. Ouch. Fortunately, erging does not aggravate it at all. However running has been out of the question until now. I've been doing physiotherapy for a month or so. Mainly working on foot and hip stability. They were rubbish. Now we're rebuilding my running "style" by upping the cadence and aiming for light foot steps, to reduce the risk of injury.

Sooo, I finally got onto the treadmill in the gym this evening. Five times one min on and one min off. Concentrating on running form. At the end, just to see, I cranked up the speed until I was at 6min/mile (16k/h) and it felt great, even if it was only for a minute. That's fast enough to get me into the top 10 in the UK, if I can keep it up for 10k :lol: . We'll see...
