No Running!!

Friday, September 06, 2013

After my morning run I could no longer ignore the horrible pain in my knee. emoticon It took me 21 minutes to complete 1 mile and was tearing up towards the end :( Called the Dr. and they got me in right away to check me out. Dr. says its a torn meniscus in my right knee. I have an MRI scheduled next week to confirm but until then I am told not to run but I can walk short distances. Since I have a 5k next Saturday I am so frustrated and upset I can't do what I love. I plan on walking that 5k and dont care how long it takes me to complete it lol. I can still workout this week and next but more non-weight bearing workouts instead of my 2 mile runs. I will not let this stop my progress!! I have worked too hard to give up now! emoticon

    Good luck with the knee. When I was sick last month it really sucked not being able to run.

    Oh, no! Sorry to hear you won't be able to run the 5K, but taking this break will make it easier to run in the future. Don't be hard on yourself--you can do this, too!

    I'm so sorry about your knee! You are looking at this with a wonderful, positive attitude, though! Keep rocking those good vibes!

    At least you can still walk instead of being bedridden : ) focus on the positives!

    Ice ice baby! Ice that knee a lot and never fear- I had this surgery last year and I'm doing great now (some running, some kickboxing, Zumba....).

    While waiting for the surgery and then during the physical therapy, I did the Sparkpeople seated workouts to pass the time- they're really not ad, and coach Nicole never makes you feel like a 70 year old doing them. Hang in there!
