Back to the Beginning

The happy news is that I ran today, actually ran! My MRI results came back and they weren't as bad as we thought they were going to be. Turns out, I only sprained my knee (waa waa, yep I feel like a big baby!)
I was actually terrified to get back on the treadmill. The first 10 minutes were really tough, I think mentally more than anything. I had to concentrate a whole lot on my stride, it still seems really goofy to me.
My cardio is gone. It looks like I'm start back to were I was 4 week before the injury. I'm bummed about that, but trying to get past it. Hopefully it won't take as long as I think it's going to take to get back to where I was before. Good thing there is still lots of time before the half marathon!

Still Out, and Frustrated

I'm still completely out because of a knee injury and very frustrated. I have my MRI on Tuesday, so hopefully things go on the fast track after that! I was in a car accident when I was a teenager and had glass in my knee as a result. At the time we thought that we got it out, but as it turns out, there is still some in there causing havoc! My doctor doesn't want me doing anything until they find out whats going on in there. I'm planning on the best outcome and hoping to run my first 5 k in May.

Getting Back to Work

Okay, so I haven't run since Tuesday last week because of the knee injury. I'm going to get back to it tomorrow. I'm a little nervous that I am going to have a small set back, not sure what to expect. Hopefully tomorrow isn't too harsh.

WARNING: Avoid Jump Ropes:)

I've been attending strength training classes every Wednesday and the class this week didn't go so well. We had several "stations" that we had to go through, nothing to scary. The least of my worries was 1 minute of jumping rope. Boy was I wrong! A few jumps into it and I had a horrible pain rip through my knee. I've been out for two days because of it and really, really bummed!
