My running journey after being diagnosed with early osteoarthritis is not easy as it may seen. I struggle with so many things, especially FEAR of not being able to run again.
My 6 months base training has been, blessed and wonderful. I didnt feel any pain. But it does feels a little weird on my left knee, sometimes.
Managed to break my 10k PB tho. Better that my normal performance when I was, well, 'healthy'.
I never, seriously never takes running seriously. Never care about my running schedule, distance, races, etc. Not until I was diagnosed with OA.
People said we tend to appreciate things when we lost something we really love.
And yes, now I really appreciate every miles I run. Every single mile. So that I wont regret anything when my time to run is up.
Training has been very consistent since January. Rest days pun only on Monday & Friday. Tersusun je semua compared to few months earlier.
Now maintaining 180+km mileage per month. Will keep it that way for the next couple of months. Previously mileage below 150km.
Gonna get myself a pacer after this. For my speedwork training.
