Or Q and His Knee Jerk Reaction
Or Q and Why Does My Knee Hurt?
This was my weekend a week ago:
And this was me less than a week ago:
There’s a theme here. I’m a week and half into unexplained knee pain. I know what’s happening (tendonitis), but I don’t know why (unless we accept that my knee is an a-hole argument).
I spent a week on steroids and that seemed to help, but then I tweaked it on day 5 of steroids, and three days later, I’m back in the kind of pain I was in before starting the steroids.
With a couple of other things, I’m now two and half weeks removed from my last run, which was just a light jaunt to shake out the post-10K creaks.
My goal was a 10K every other month, and it’s already in jeopardy, and not the cool Ken Jennings kind.
If I go after the race I’m targeting, I’m looking at basically 5 weeks to go from 0 to 10K.
That’s probably not going to happen.
This is going to be an interesting year.
