Right now I'm sitting here completely annoyed, frustrated, upset, sad, and just angry. But the day didn't start out that way. I was happy and excited about going out for my long run today because the weather was beautiful and I had decided to revisit my old favorite running trail, the Highline Canal.
I headed out for my run and there were so many people out on the trail running, walking, riding their bikes, and it was just nice to be out and about. I had to do a 1:20 run, so I decided to do an out and back. I felt great all the way out, but once I turned around at the 40min. mark, I started to feel a little twinge in my right knee.
I walked the rest of the way to my car almost on the verge of tears. With only 3 months left until IMAZ this is just NOT something that I need nor want to be dealing with. I thought I was done with this stupid injury and I don't understand what caused it. But, I am thinking that it might have been the trail I was running on. I have not run on that trail since I had my injury this spring. It is a packed dirt trail that is pretty uneven. So, maybe running on an uneven surface was the culprit???
All I know is that I really, really do not want to go down the path of PT appointments and not being able to run. It sucked! I'm not scheduled to run again until Tuesday, so hopefully my IT band will get its act together and be right again! If you can, please send positive healing vibes my way! I can use all I can get! :)
