I'm almost in the habit of doing the step-ups as I arrive at work. I did remember to do them this morning and all was well.
This evening I did my usual basic run around the woods, and for the first time in many weeks, ran the descents too. The whole route was done relatively gently although I did make a bit of an effort on the 3 ascents. On the descents I tried to think about gait, especially not trying to slow myself, perhaps trying to run into the fall where it was shallow. On some of the slightly steeper bits that didn't feel right and I was conscious of being a little heavy on my heels.
Tomorrow, or even Thursday, will show how things are going.
