The knee is not any better and I have not been able to run since my sorry excuse for an attempt last Tuesday!! That is a full week without running and I must say that I think I am a bit depressed and a lot frustrated!! I have been moping around and feeling blah!!
The other MAJOR issue is that I have had a knot in my right shoulder blade that has been getting worse and worse. It is now radiating into my neck, down to my elbow and has a trigger point in my low back, hip and buttocks! All on the right side, which is also the side that the knee hurts! I can barely turn my neck.....Needless to say, if you cut me in half right down the middle, my left side would be ready for a dance party and maybe a half marathon and my right side would want to be shot and put out of its misery!!!!
I am going to a massage therapist this afternoon (otherwise known in town as a "witch doctor" because he makes pain miraculously and mysteriously dissapear!) for my shoulder and neck and I am most likely making an appointment with an orthopedic for the knee. And so my non- running saga continues!!!! My half marathon is in a little less than 6 weeks and I am praying for recovery in time to finish training and run the race......fingers crossed and tons of prayers!!!!
I want to say a big congrats to my mentor/coach Bryan on his awesome performance at the MCM this weekend....... He did not hit his BQ goal of 3:15 but he came in at 3:32:01!! Great job Bryan.....You rock!!
