Yesterday I posted about listening to our bodies when we have aches and pains and when we should or shouldn't run. This morning when I got up about 4:30 crazy am I decided I would see how my knee felt before I made a decision about to run or not to run. It still felt a little sore so I did a little jogging in place to see. It felt fine so I got dressed brushed my teeth and headed out the door to drive to town to run (I live sorta in the country with no lighted area to run so I have to drive into town).
I parked saw that my buddy Sarah wasn't coming so I grabbed my headphones and off I went. I decided to change my route up a little so I would get a couple of miles in fairly close to my car in case the knee started to act up. Things was going along just fine and I was able to maintain an 8:50 pace, I was shocked thinking I wouldn't be able to.
I made it to 2.44mi and then...............
I sat there for a moment, said a few cuss words, shed a few tears and finally got up and hobbled about a 1/2 mile back to my car.
I am okay just scrapped up pretty bad and my knee is hurting/throbbing which has gotten somewhat worse through out the day:( Hopefully tomorrow it will be lots better!
