A bump in the road, on the treadmill

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Due to the return of winter, I opted to do my training run on the treadmill today, and I'm glad I did. I was feeling great as I passed the two-mile point, when suddenly felt a sharp pain in my left knee. I slowed way down, and finished 3.75 of the 4 miles I had planned to do alternating between walking and an easy jog.

I have stretched, elevated, iced, and wrapped, and now I'll just have to see how the week goes to know whether I will be running my 5K next Saturday, or walking it. I have high hopes that this is just a minor bump in my race training road.

    That stinks!

    But in all reality, I know what's really going on. You don't want me to beat you. You don't want to cry in front of all those people. It's okay - it'll only make you stronger.

    emoticon Maybe I'll see you on Saturday - if not I know I'll see you soon anyways!

    Take care, hope you're feeling better very soon. Don't push too hard and take a chance, there will be more 5K's in your future.

    Hang in there little sister, but don't push yourself and do permanent damage to your knee, replacements aren't fun.
