It’s been awfully quiet from my end…right?
Well let’s not beat around the bush – I didn’t run in July.
I took the first week off planned because I had a fishing trip planned and it was going to involve lots of drinking and shenanigans and not a lot of time for running. Fine, I mean it’s only a week? Well…on the second day of the trip we were 40 miles offshore and took a hit from a large wave. I had my heel locked and my thighs braced on the boat side and the wave tweaked and twisted me just right to feel a slight pop/tear in my right knee.
It’s been crap ever since. I tried a few times to run and I can’t get more than a quarter mile without a pretty disturbing pain from the backside of my knee. I became pretty sure that I partially tore something and decided to just rest until walking and jogging from point to point didn’t hurt.
As of now the knee finally doesn’t hurt when I walk and I’ve been able to do a quick jog to the mailbox and back without it feeling like things were floating around in there.
I’m ready to test it out again this week and see if I can run again. I’m starting to go stir crazy with the time off. My sleep is getting messed up and I generally just don’t feel complete and on top of my game without running.
Wish me luck!
