No Running Allowed

The title kind of says it all, right? I returned to physical therapy today after being told to skip it a few days due to some ridiculous injury to my knee. No running. None. I did run a few weeks ago. Twice. It felt fantastic, no pain and no swelling. Then my knee decided to act up as I was crossing my legs and I couldn’t bend my knee past 90*, making going down stairs pretty interesting. Today I only completed 25% of the exercises I had in the past. Completely discouraging.No-Running-Pool-Marker-MK-0222I talked to my physical therapist today and he said in his opinion, I should wait another few weeks to run.
WAIT A FEW WEEKS TO RUN. Did anyone but me catch that? That means I don’t get to run the Ohio Michigan 8k, one of my favorite races to run every year. 2016-06-22 16.05.30I get it. It’s for the best to keep my knee healthy for the long run, not just right now. I need to work on building strength and then get back to running. I am running the Boy Scout Half Marathon on September 3, soooo I need to start running in time to train for that.

Knee surgery #6 can suck it.

  1. Oh no, that sucks!! Hope you can make it a slow easy one for the OH/MI race… that’s almost a few weeks away! But really, take it easy. You’ve got your whole life ahead of you 🙂

    • As of now I am allowed to start running the week of OH MI. UGHHH. So, not even going to try walking the 4.98 miles. I’ll probably go to the after party to see everyone though.
      I am definitely listening to them and taking it easy, I want to be able to run as long as I can, not just right now.
