No Running Allowed

The title kind of says it all, right? I returned to physical therapy today after being told to skip it a few days due to some ridiculous injury to my knee. No running. None. I did run a few weeks ago. Twice. It felt fantastic, no pain and no swelling. Then my knee decided to act up as I was crossing my legs and I couldn’t bend my knee past 90*, making going down stairs pretty interesting. Today I only completed 25% of the exercises I had in the past. Completely discouraging.No-Running-Pool-Marker-MK-0222I talked to my physical therapist today and he said in his opinion, I should wait another few weeks to run.
WAIT A FEW WEEKS TO RUN. Did anyone but me catch that? That means I don’t get to run the Ohio Michigan 8k, one of my favorite races to run every year. 2016-06-22 16.05.30I get it. It’s for the best to keep my knee healthy for the long run, not just right now. I need to work on building strength and then get back to running. I am running the Boy Scout Half Marathon on September 3, soooo I need to start running in time to train for that.

Knee surgery #6 can suck it.

Technology Trifecta

I was having issues with my laptop over the weekend and after further research the hard drive died on me. My 6-month-old laptop died. That blows, right?
Well, my technology issues were just starting at that point.
I’m not an NBA fan at all, but I had to watch the Cavs game on Sunday and I’m happy I did. How epic was that shit? My cable and wifi were working perfectly fine until midnight, when I went to bed. I woke up and at 6:00 a.m. neither was working.
A call to my cable company later and they said they can’t detect any signal from my house at all. Better yet is that the earliest they can come to my house to inspect it is Friday afternoon.
It’s the stone ages in my house this week. It might as well be 1990 and I have a land line connected to the wall. Luckily I have an ass ton of movies, but it’s crazy how much I use my wifi in general. Never noticed until I didn’t have it.

Laptop
Wifi
Cable

What a bitch.

 

When You Can’t Leave PT Yet

It’s amazing how easy it is for some people to go from zero to giant fucking tool in no time at all. I spent a few days trying to figure out how people can be such major assholes to people they claim to have a sincere interest in. Couldn’t think of an answer, except that […]

Gaining Confidence & A Hold On Running

I haven’t hid the fact that I gained around 12 pounds during marathon training from January – April. Why did I gain so much (11% of my body weight)? Because I ate everything and anything all the time. And it was fantastic. BUT, now I am paying for eating all the things as I am […]

Monday’s Motivation

National Running Day Half Mile Success

When most people are told they can’t do something, it makes them want to do it even more. I knew I wouldn’t be able to run for 6-8 weeks after I started physical therapy (PT) following knee surgery #6, naturally the weather turned ahhmazing and I wanted to run more than ever. Today marks 4 […]
