|Good knee. Yay!|
They said don't worry. you'll be fine. Chill for few days and ice. GULP. That was horrible death sentance. And immediately prompted a text to my running friend:
Me: hey, something is wrong with my knee. I keep starring at it. I think one is bigger than the other. Don't say anything. I don't know what is up and don't want the fuss. I think I'm going to start posting old garmin data. People know when I don't run. lol
Friend: lol.pseudo blog. that's awesome!
Friend: "wow Laura these are the same splits you ran a few weeks ago"
Me: hahahaha or I can stand at the bridge at Shelly Lake and beg someone to do a few laps with my garmin. C'mon take it please! and run fast!
Friend: hahaha Do it! Find some crazy fast ghost runner.
Me: lolol. Joey will be the first to notice I didn't run today. Watch...
Friend: Unless I rat you out. lol
Me: No subtle jokes on my wall! Like, "hey laura, was that you leaving the north raleigh health plex? You didn't wave??"
Friend: Too funny. This better heal soon.
Me: I'm taking recovery tonight and hoping I wake up fresh and not soaked from a bag of ice.
It goes on and on and had me rolling in tears. Too funny. I took 3 full days off from running. I feel much better. I'm not sure why that happened. I thought maybe I hit a rock or root a little off. Not sure. Oh well.
I did 6 miles this morning and felt better. I wasn't exactly fresh. I was killing it in the pool doing an hour of freestyle a day. Going from swim to run is tough. My legs must me thinking, "what are you doing to us now?! Poor things.
After my 6 miler I went back with my blackberry and got some pretty pics. It was 80, humid and dark out at 8am. Right before a storm:
|I never see this as pretty when I run through here. I'm usually mf'ing the herky jerky bridge.|
I think the moral of my knee story is to slow down once in a while. I have to stop running the same pace every run. And then hopping on the bike and into a pool, before lunch...well maybe do that just once a week..; )
