Working it out…

  
It was a perfect day in central Illinois.  The kind that make you want to run all day…unless you’re injured.  It’s been pretty quiet on this blog, and it has a lot to do with me not running.  

My wife and I ran the Christmas in July 6-hour race back in the middle of July.  Everything felt pretty good at the time, and I gave myself a few weeks off to let my legs refresh.  Two weeks ago I went out for an 8 mile run and came back hobbling.  My right knee is on the outs.  

I gave it another two weeks before heading out for a two mile easy run today.  I didn’t make it a full mile before being reduced to a walk.  Not good.  

I’m on the road next week, having work in Knoxville….and I’m not going to be able to hit the trails.  

I have been using this time to work on some much needed cross training, but I’m dying to get out running again.  

Happy running!
