Wednesday 3.0 miles/26:13/8:45 average pace
Well, the first two miles of this morning's run felt great. I actually got really exctied that my knee was 100% better and I thought of titling this post "Clean Slate" or something like that... but that last mile caused me some pain and reminded me I am not near 100% yet. :(
I am thinking positive and really trying to not stress out. I mean it's only 2 1/2 weeks since my marathon, and they say it takes one day of recovery for every mile raced. Also, I told myself that I wanted to take it really easy for a few weeks after the race. A few = 3-4 weeks, not 2 weeks. Anyway, I"m hopeful that my knee will continue to improve as long as I don't push it. I will keep the running very limited to 2-3 miles each time, and only every other day at most. I still have several weeks before I"m supposed to start training for Boston, so there is no rush.
Uggggh. I wish my knee didn't hurt. :( I really miss running and I feel like such a lazy ass. I hope it gets better soon. I've got this sick feeling of what if it doesn't, and I can't train for Boston. I know that is a pretty extreme take on my 2-weeks post marathon knee soreness, but it's the truth. Poo!!
