Ok at least a healed knee. After almost four weeks Tim and I headed out last night for a short 4 mile run. Equipped with new shoes and a good pre run stretch we knocked it down with ~9 minute miles. While I noticed the cardio wasn’t where it normally would be the knee felt great! More specifically it didn’t feel different at all,–just like it should.
I find it hard to stop and let my body heal when I get a tweak or pain. This time, being my knee was the issue, I did nothing more than walk-ok I did go skiing and hike with med-heavy pack several times—but no running. Perhaps a touch of wisdom acquired over the years? I don’t plan on upping the mileage too much since Denali is only 10 weeks away. I will ramp up with 4-6 mile runs so I can get my cardio back. I also need to find more trails near home…concrete is evil. Run on!
