Well I am in the Hurt Locker. I am so stinking frustrated.
I never cancel my Thursday runs with Danielle. When I woke up this morning my knee was still angry at me from Wednesdays run.
I was sick that I had to bail on a 10 mile run with Danielle.
I went to the gym. I thought I would try a mile on the track to see if my knee just needed to work itself out.
I made it 1 mile before I threw in the towel.
I headed upstairs with my magazine and phone.
Todays workout looked like this:
Stretch and Roll: 20 minutes
Abs: 10 minutes
Bike: 8 miles
Cold PLUNGE 20 minutes of brutal torture. I am pretty sure I was on the cusp of a verbal breakdown. I was sitting on the edge of the icy water rocking back and forth grumbling with foreign noises of torture escaping my lips. I didn't care who heard me it hurt so bad. I finally settled into a comfortable numbness after about 5 minutes. At that point I was able to withstand the bitterness with a few rounds or Words With Friends. (My Guilty Pleasure).

I had my alternative plan already laid out before I left the house. Let's not be so open minded that our brains fall out. My knee has been bugging me for a few days. Andy was home on Wednesday and witnessed me limping into the house. Later that afternoon he was asking me why I was putting my bike in the truck on my way to Cross Country.
I had a good idea I was not going to be able to run on it. So I needed to come up with a Plan B. And that did not include staying home having a pity party.
I am not sure what is going on with my knee. This much I know. I am going to take it easy for a couple days..NO RUNNING. And see how I feel on Sunday. I am hoping it feels better by then. I would really like to run Sunday.
I could use some Prayers if you remember me during your prayer time.
