Jean's sub 23minute 5k

This post is about the Tuesday evening run 27th June 2006. A good number of Buckley runners at the Elfed School meet for 7 for 7:15ish. Five of us set off at a gentle pace towards the measured 5k route Rob, Rob, Anne,Jean & Rebecca. At the 5k route I decided to run rather than jog and with Jean close behind to tell me where to turn we managed the 5k in under 23minutes. Pleasing , considering the anterior knee pain went up to 3/10 or so. The following morning going downstairs it was back to a 4/10 pain. Back to the stretches & squats, and all the physio directed exercises. And to see The Knee Specialist Mr Dai Rees at Gobowen Hospital on Monday . I am considering testing these knees out a bit more before then - perhaps on Friday the Celyn 5mile at the Horticultural College Northop, or the Ellesemere 10k sunday or a 8mile training run . The long run is tempting as not managed that distance for oh so long .... perhaps since Blackpool marathon June 19 2005.
Well done Jean on the 5k, and coach Les was pleased.
If i'm there on Friday see folks at the Celyn races .
