Frustrated and Sad

My knee pain is back. It’s the same pain I had back in July.

This time, it started last Tuesday a little less than four miles into what was supposed to be an eight mile run. I had to cut the run short.

At first, it only hurt when I ran.

My friend Rebecca was visiting this weekend and we did quite a bit of hiking. The weather wasn’t great while she was here, but there was a long enough break from the rain to get a few miles in on the Appalachian Trail.

Unfortunately, I think I overdid it. Yesterday the knee was hurting on the bike and even just walking around.

I guess I will be in the pool for a while.

I don’t know what this means about the Blue Ridge Marathon, but I can’t even think about that right now. I’m having a hard enough time dealing with not being able to run the Charlottesville Ten Miler this weekend.

    As runners, I think we’ve all been here. And it sucks, and I know nothing is going to make it better except for it to feel better and for you to be able to run. I hope it gets better soon! That picture on the AT is gorgeous.
