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.
