Good run & knee pain

So on Monday, I had a good 7+ mile run. It was one of those runs that felt good from start to finish.I even stopped at one point to take a couple pictures of some cows hat were grazing on a farm.

I run by the farm almost every time I run during lunch time at work. But the cows are usually way up on the hills. That day I could have pet every single one as they walked near the wired fence. It was cool...
..... Eh,... I thought it was cool anyways....

It's been real busy at work. Hectic kinda busy. If I didn't mention it before, I am my company's Helpdesk person. So I'm the one people call or email when there is a problem. That same day (Monday), there was an "issue" where all the printers on the 2nd floor ran out of paper. There is usually boxes of paper by each printer but for some reason, there weren't any boxes. I'm not responsible for this paper. Facility dept is. Anyways, like I said,  I'm the one they go to when there is a problem. When I get the call about the paper, I call facilities and get no one. After the 3rd call I get, frustrated I decide to go get the paper myself. I go down to the basement, throw one of the 50 pound boxes on my shoulder and head for the stairs.
The very first step I took I felt a sharp pain on my left knee. I knew that couldn't be good.

Sure enough. Here I am Wednesday night still icing my knee. It doesn't really hurt, but I feel a real bad discomfort. I didn't run Tuesday nor Today. And I probably wont run tomorrow or the rest of the week. All I keep thinking is "listen to your body". I keep reading that phrase in almost all the blogs I've come across. So that is what I'm doing. Listening to my body telling not to run. Even though my brain is telling my otherwise O_o .......

I'll have a giveaway soon. Just have to get off my lazy ass and get it all together and post it. Stay tuned!

My body and my brain are frequently at odds ;)

I hope your knee is feeling better quick!

I'm a salesman for my company. When our warehouse guy is on vacation I have to stay in and load trucks & stuff. It seems like I always jack something up when I do that. It's mostly because I'm soft to manual labor these days, but it's frustrating when I tweak my back or something while getting something on a pallet covering someone else's job. Someone's gotta do it I guess. Good luck with that knee - probably nothing, but knees are tricky. You've got a good plan listening to your body.
