We're doing the 15k on December 3rd and we're getting sweet wind breakers & lots of hot chocolate - yay!!
Now on to the not so happy part of the post...
My knee is still bothering me. A lot. instead of running on Saturday I took an hour and 1/2 Ashtanga Yoga class at the gym and picked up a Pro-Tec Patella Tendon Strap from P.R.R. On sunday I tried out the strap for what I was hoping to be another 6-9 miles. It felt good on my knee, but I still only made it 2.5 miles before giving up because of the pain.
Well, fuck. Excuse my language, but seriously, just....FUCK.
The race is 2 weeks away. The longest I've made is 9.5 miles...ONCE. And now my knee has picked the perfect time to start giving up. I've spent the last 3-4 months training for this and I feel defeated before the race has even begun.
I'm taking the week off running and will hopefully get something in on Friday, but we will see. We will see.
