(NOT so) Patiently Waiting For My Knee to Heal

July 22, 2010

This is me, obviously unhappy about the current state of affairs

As you probably have noticed, I haven’t posted in a few weeks. Sadly, that’s because my worries of a knee injury came true and I have been unable to run since mid-July šŸ˜¦ But wait, you are probably asking, aren’t you supposed to be training for a marathon?! Yes, I am. And I’m doing my best to keep up my aerobic endurance by exercising on the elliptical, swimming and taking exercises classes. I will absolutely, 100% be running Chicago on 10-10-10, COUNT IT! I can’tĀ guaranteeĀ a best time, but I will certainly be running 26.2 through the streets of Chicago šŸ™‚

Luckily, my injury, while it is a hugeĀ inconvenience, is not that large of an issue in the grand scheme of things. What I worried was aĀ meniscusĀ tear, was actually just bothersome kneeĀ tendinitisĀ and some meniscus deterioration, whatever that means! Anyways, for the past few weeks I haven’t been running, but instead I have been busyĀ diligentlyĀ doing my knee exercises. Fingers crossed that I will be back up and running on July 30th, so on that day I ask that you send some good vibes my way! For those who have knee issues, I will be documenting my knee exercises (however awkward they may be) on the blog and sharing them with you. They’re relatively easy and can be done at home! Even if you’re not injured they are great exercises for strengthening your quads, hamstrings, hip flexors and other little pesky leg muscles.

This injury also means that I have to bow out of the Marathon Sports 5 Miler, which is taking place in Weston, MA and several of my favorite Boston based twitter/blogger friends are taking part of! Good luck to @ninaruns @reallynotarunnr @petfxr @bostoncardiovet andĀ @foodtorunfor! Kick butt and PR’s to all of you šŸ™‚ I’m sorry that I can’t join you, but I look forward to partaking in the festivities next year!

    You’ll be missed! I still think you should join us for a few beers in the parking lot afterward!
