|saturday's long run ~ one week after DWD|
i decided to ignore it and run anyway. i followed that 12 miles with my normal training schedule and each day my leg didn't feel so good but since it didn't actually hurt i just didn't stop running.
by wednesday of last week it it was pretty awful. still not painful but very uncomfortable. i ran 15 miles with my friend debbie and after that run decided i would rest an extra day before my next long run on saturday. then when saturday came... i decided that since the knee was still feeling weak i would rest the saturday and the sunday.
it is now monday and i'm not running until after i see my PT tomorrow and he's had a chance to assess what i've done.
i'm hoping that with some intense deep tissue massage i will be back on track and can run on wednesday. that will mark an entire week of not running. i'm kinda hoping that it's long enough.
this is what i've got coming up:
madison 1/2 marathon = 19 days
striders 1/2 marathon = 26 days
instep trail 1/2 marathon = 40 days
north face trail 5K = 48 days
beat the blerch 10K = 54 days
milwaukee lakefront marathon = 69 days
milwaukee beer run 5K = 97 days
