Yes, peeps! It's true.
I will not be starting at the marathon this weekend. My running season this year is pretty much DONE, finished.....bu-bye!
My knee has been giving me a lot of crap since my pre-20 mile long run weekend. It has not stopped. I have been through 3 full weeks of PT and starting my 4th week tomorrow. The pain, clicking, locking, and stiffness is just getting to me.
I have had a MRI last week. It didn't show anything clear for a meniscus tear so I had a cortisone injection this afternoon. The injection brought 8 glorious pain-free hours before the pain came back like a b****! But it was localized in the joint where most of my pain has been coming from.
I should know what the next step is by Wednesday when I call back with a status update to my doctor. I want to run to running...period. This weekend will be tough, but I know that I have couple of great friends coming into town and I plan to put 110% into making sure that this is THEIR weekend. I don't want to feel sad about this. It's time to move on and take control as much as I can.
I plan to avenge this marathon and make 2011 the best running season ever. I promise!
