The knee pain in my left knee that I mentioned the other day is mostly gone. I’ve been icing, foam rolling, and generally taking it easy. I’ve avoided taking an anti-inflammatory because I feel like I tend to do too much when I can’t feel the pain. Plus, I want to know when it feels better unadulterated by medication.
My long run today obviously didn’t happen because of my knee but I think I’m going to try for my recovery run tomorrow and knock back my long run mileage 1 or 2 miles next week.
This injury isn’t the end of the world though, especially since I’m probably switching fall half marathons. I had to plan on giving my recital the same weekend as the Houston half, so unfortunately I had to find another race. I THINK I’m going to do the Dallas running club half the following weekend, worked out a little too perfectly! However I’m still determined to finally go to Houston this fall to see a bunch of friends and check out the city.
