Injury Update - YES The Doctor Told Me To

Image
Just wanted to give a quick update for anyone who might not have already heard. I went last week for a follow-up. I was actually in a lot of pain, as much pain as when the injury began. The x-ray did not show any fractures, BUT I was told that I could still have a fracture. I will need a bone scan or MRI to completely rule out any fractures. What did show up, however,

I Can Do This Right?

Well, this was my first run outside since I've been sick. I can't say that it was easy. Ok, there wasn't really much about this easy for me today. My breathing was horrible. It felt like I was just breathing 'off the top' if that makes sense. My running buddy told me to blow out hard and then breathe in. It worked. I was finally able to get in a deep breath.

We ran a few miles of flat then added in some hills. My knee tolerated it ok. I didn't have any 'pain', but just a few tweaks and twinges. I'm planning on (trying) to stretch this evening.

The moment I got back from the run, I've been on go go go mode. So I haven't really had time to really stretch it the way that it needs to be stretched.

I've been really stressed lately with training (or lack of) with being sick, my knee feeling off etc. But I'm trying to be positive and tell myself that it's ok. I have one 18 miler under my belt this go around. I will probably get in a 16 this weekend, and I'll have a hopefully solid 20 before the taper. I'm a little concerned about the hills with the knee. But my plan is to make the best of it.

I can do this right?
