If you are clicking here, you are probably desperate. In which case, I hope your knee gets better soon too.
I have been running again after taking about a week off. There was something hindering me from flexing my knee and some knee discomfort. Still have NO idea what exactly it is, but I think it might have been a quadriceps tendinopathy. Finally, I think it is going away. And in it's place, I have some VERY confused legs: tight calves, tight hamstrings, hips that feel like I am a not-so-spry 80 year-old....going very slowly.
I am starting to realize I might have a running specialty: marathon training through injury.
Sure. I could be bitter. But, if this is my niche, I choose to embrace it!
The following video (about 45 seconds) demonstrates how to run with a knee injury.*
It would be irresponsible for me to post this without also mentioning that It is not recommended to run when an injury affects your gait. Doing so might cause compensation injuries to occur.
Six weeks to Eugene Marathon! I honestly have NO idea what I'll be doing on April 29th. I WILL be in Eugene- just not sure what exactly I'll be doing there. Bring it ON.
"Run Happy" sometimes = just running. period.
