Thanks for all the wonderful and supportive comments on my last post. I wish I had better news but I believe that I have an inflammed tendon connecting from my quad to the patella. I have not been running for 4 days and I can still feel and see slight inflammation above my knee cap and into my quad. To read more about this specific type of injury go here. Of course this is all self diagnosis since I haven't been to see my doctor. My dad goes to this chiropractor that does ART so maybe I will try to get an appointment there.
Like I said before, this is sad that I won't be able to run but I think its for the best. Looking back I have been training for a college sport (either basketball or track) without any breaks since March 2007. Before that I didn't have much time off either so this is the perfect time to take a step back and rest. I don't want to push the injury to try and run the half so I have decided that I will not be running it no matter what.
Ok ok enough about my knee...moving on...
Tomorrow I am heading to the pool at 5am for a little swimming. It should be really interesting!
This week I have a few posts planned that will drift away from running and expose a little bit more about myself, J. Hope everyone had a great weekend and I promise no more talk about my knee!
