Day 527 - 531 The Insanity Continues
Hi there. Greetings from your average, ordinary, streak-running idiot. Good News and Bad News on the running front.
Good News: On Saturday I decided, why not just keep doing the ultra training plan? See what happens? How far can I go? That means hey let's go run an 8 miler! Yeah. And since I've been running piddling one milers for so long, lets do some SPEED! (Yeah I know it's all relative.) Lets practice the 5 minutes running one minute walking approach, and really bust those five minute stretches. End result? 8 miles in 80:47 which considering there was (after one mile of continuous running mind you) about eleven minutes of speed walking in there, pretty ridiculously fast for me. Yeah me!
Bad News: Who was the idiot who decided to run more than one mile? Did he forget what the knife-like pain in the knee feels like the day after? One hour after? The limping? The dread of stairs? The looks, the pointing, the snickering, the "what happened to you??"? Apparently he did. Someone smack him.
Right so I'm still pondering/looking for a specialist to go to, and looking at the physical therapy orders the doctor gave. Apparently there are some opinions out there that suggest PT for runner's knee type issues, which this could be. Enh. I kinda wish it wouldn't stop hurting because then maybe I would have fewer of these insanity moments...
Back to the leg-dragging one milers. Cheers! :)
