Ice, Ice, Ice!!
A week or so back, before deciding to give a marathon a go in November, I tweaked my right knee. Not sure if I tried to go to fast too soon, old shoes, or maybe I'm just getting old!! Haha.
I missed two "running dates" with my marathon training partner Eric, meaning we've not yet gotten out for a run together since deciding to run the November 20 butt kicker.
Now, I'm cross training with the elliptical machine and bike as they are less stressful on my bad knee. I changed my shoes on Rebecca's advice. I've been taking it easy and trying to ice 4-5 times daily.
I'm getting to feel like it's going to be a matter of "pain management" rather than "healing". Only three months until the race. Still not sure if I'm going to be there for the marathon. Depends on if the knee can survive anything over 5k.
Plenty of time to figure it out!
On a more celebratory note, Pae improved her personal best 5k time last night at the track! 38:39 !! Sweet!
