The Road to NYC: An Injury Update

 Some people have bad backs; others have weak ankles. Me? I have bad knees. They aren't always bad, but they are always one move away from being injured. It's just always been that way, so again, here I am with a knee injury.

It started out innocently enough, a little tweak on the track while running my cool down mile. I stopped for a moment, shook it out, ran a little slower, and nothing of note happened. Until it did. One step into a lunge and I was done for the week.

It's almost a full week out and my knee is slowly getting better. I've had to lay off all physical activity and even spent a little time on some crutches to let everything calm down. It hurts. It hurts my head and heart too. I haven't even taken the time to put pencil to paper and rewrite how I'm going to do this marathon training thing. I'm honestly not sure when I can even run again.

Just giving the quick update. I'll be sharing the moves I'm doing to safely regain strength over on Instagram. Taping, wrapping, icing, anti-inflammatory meds and foods. I'm doing it all in hopes this will pass quickly and I'm back on the road to NYC soon.
