Knee, Get Well Soon

At this point, my knee is trouncing my rib in terms of annoyingness. Today I can breathe deeply without pain. That is good. Unfortunately, yesterday my knee was quite bothersome for the first mile of my run (at which point I decided to turn a 20 mile run into a 5 miler) and was another for the rest. The knee is not painful when I’m just tooling around, although it can be a bit tight. Gonna try for 5 miles tonight. I’d really like to be able to hit the track again soon, but am not sure when that’ll happen as it looks like running fast will be a later step in recovery. I’m hopping it at least comes around some by this weekend as I had intended to go out to the Shenandoah Mts for a weekend of running long.

    Thanks guys, giving it time to rest now. Quite annoying that my major rib injury clears up only to be kept from running by what seemed like a run of the mill fall on my knee! Mason, as my later post suggests, my sis and I are both in for the MMC weekend. Didn't see your name on the list though. What gives?
