the knee pain.
is not over.
after wednesdays' pain free run last week,
and an even better run on friday; i took saturday off -
i didn't want to mess with any good recovery mojo.
i had high hopes for today's run.
it didn't go so well.
the knee is still talking to me and i don't like what it has to say.
cause we're running & we're happy and then it says -
you need to stop running now.
four miles at a time seems to be the limit right now.
i wish my patience had a higher time limit.
I am so sorry to hear that. Do you have any PT sessions left? Have you tried using a foam roller for your ITB? I know how savvy you are so I bet you have, but I just wanted to offer some sympathy and suggestions.
Hang in there--I'm pulling for you!
oh yeah - had PT today, again this friday (if i need it wednesday, i can go wednesday) and once next week. i am all over (literally) the foam roller, have heel lift in left shoe & pt girl said to go ahead & try the ITB strap.
i am always open to sympathy & suggestions!! thanks!!!
I won't lie I am the worst about trying to recover and especially if it affects my running. however maybe this is your opportunity to become a better swimmer? To really become a super amazing pilates person...or to give your body a break and remember your other passions.
amanda - other passions? what does that mean? you mean, there is life beyond running? actually, if i were a more mature person, i would probably have an easier time of directing some attention normally devoted to running elsewhere - but i'd much rather be annoyed and whine about how i'm not running as much as i'd like! i was planning on some more bike time, but my pt girl thinks that yesterdays' 40 mile ride set me back a bit. damn. think i may just take what i can get - 4 miles at a time.
You know, i have a tweaky little knee thingy going and I think biking is either making it worse or might even be the cause. Damn stupid cross training. I didn't want to do it anyway. :D Maybe we should boycott?
I am right there with you girl!!
Four days now of no running is making me crazy!! I was a mad woman on a mission on my trainer at home this weekend.
Massage booked for Wed. then hopefully a run on Thursday. I have been through ITBand issues before so I know what I need to do. Just hard playing the waiting game.
hang in there chic!
sorry to hear this suzanne. fatty said the ride yesterday was brutal. my wrist is still screwy - i have pt tomorrow. fingers crossed for you.
Hang in there! Listen to the good PT - it may take a little longer than you hoped to get back into things, but it will come. Your ITB took a beating and it will forgive you - the foam roller kills, but it will help you out in the long run. Stay strong!
Oh, Zanne, that sucks. :( You know, it's funny... once upon a time I would have been happy to be injured because then I'd be off the hook exercise-wise, but now it just kills me! I know it must kill you more - probably by a few factors of ten or so. :) Hang in there!
I battle between I need time of to repair and if I take any more time off I lose everything I worked so hard for.
Listen to your knee.
I am actually enjoying the cross training at the moment ... probably because the weather is so bad
