My knee is really frustrating me now. Friday I decided to take my first day off in over 2 months and a week. I don't like taking days off because I feel like I am cheating myself. But, I did manage to get an hour in on the bike and about 20 minutes on the elliptical. My knee was still hurting so I thought a day off would be fitting here. But, it didn't really help my knee any. Saturday I woke up, iced and went out for a run. I was really excited because my knee felt awesome and I was running with hardly any pain at all! But, with about 3 miles left it was hurting again. That afternoon I went to Columbus to watch Blake run a mile race and Eric played at B-Dubs after. I ran 6 miles while I was there so I ended up getting 18 miles for the day. My knee was hurting bad though. So, the past two days I have been icing non stop. Literally, I have been sitting on my floor, icing for 12 minutes, elevating for 12 minutes, wrapping, then star icing again after 30 minutes. I have probably did that routine for 15 hours the past two days. Hopefully doing this will get me back in running condition. I might take today off, I am not sure yet. This week I have ran 61 miles, 16 short of last week, but with a solid cross training day in.
Me and Blake W. are going out to Reece's house for a cook out here soon. Blake is running out there but I might opt out of running with him. The swelling goes down a good bit when I am icing but after running some it swells up again.
Can't wait to eat some good food in a bit!
