I miss running.....
I haven't run since Sunday.... And I miss it. I know, I know, it's only been 6 days. But for me this is my longest stretch not running. The reason? I haven't really mentioned it on my blog only because I felt that if I didn't talk about it, it wouldn't be real. Or it would just go away.
My left knee has pretty much always bothered me from day one of running. I had it looked at once, 2yrs ago, but I was just told that it was normal wear and tear, and some rest would do it some good. Which I did.... Kind of. I didn't stop running, I just ran less.
Fast forward to the present....After the marathon, that was what I had planned, to run less.
But nooo.... I just kept pushing it. After this past Sunday's 8 miler, the pain in my knee was just unbearable. It didn't hurt anything out of the ordinary while running. I have become used to running through that pain. But after the run, while stretching, that was when I felt it!!
There was no way I could ignore it. It was time to face it.
So now the plan is to just rest..... not sure for how long. Maybe a week, maybe two weeks, maybe more.... I'll have to feel it out.
It's killing me. But I know it needs to be done.
On another note... This is my first time blogging from the train ride to NYC on my Nexus 7 tablet. The tablet works really well with the Blogger site since its Google based. I purchased the tablet since I am going to doing a lot my traveling for work. So far, I am impressed with it.
Not sure when I'll post again, so I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Send some good vibes my way so that I can get back out on the streets soon.
