Ugh...strained quad muscle
Tuesday, November 26, 2013
Went to the doctor today and found out I have a strained quad muscle, which is causing my knee pain. I have only been able to run once a week since I finished my last marathon on October 20th. I was told to make sure I stretch, foam roll and walk briskly for a week. Then to try running and see how it feels. I was able to run, 3 miles, the last 2 days but tried today and was only able to get a mile before I had to walk another 2 miles. Walking does not bother me, neither does doing T25.
Very frustrated, since I am used to running 6 days a week; 50-70 miles a week. Going from that to hardly being able to run, makes me one unhappy girl. I feel very sorry for my husband and my children, as I know I have not been fun to live with.
Hopefully, after some rest and stretching I will be back to running in no time. I just need to be a ready to go in January, as I have another marathon in May and training begins on January 6th.
