Thanks in large part to reminding myself that I have no structural abnormalities and wanting to make better use of my spare time I have began running on a fairly regular basis. The last time I ran was two days ago and in all honesty it was fantastic. I couldn't have asked for more ideal conditions and I was able to run somewhere between 5-6km. Physically I felt spent afterwards, though nothing out of the ordinary after a long run. Emotionally I was in felt relaxed and really positive. After stopping running some way through last year due to reccurrent knee and hip pain it has been liberating to take it up again. The pain I experienced last year seemed to appear almost at the same time on each run, whereas any pain I've experienced recently is short lived and generally moves around to grab my attention elsewhere.
