Dr's Appt.. :(

Wouldn't you know it? I jack my knee up and then the weather gets great! Boo hiss. Anyway, for those reading and curious, I'm out for a bit, I've apparantly sprained my MCL. Runners know what that means. For the uninitiated, there's a couple of ligaments in your knee, the MCL is the Medial Collateral Ligament. It's on the inside part of your knee. So, I'm out for a bit. Hopefully not too long, they said it seems to be a fairly mild sprain (Blinding pain excluded) so just take it easy, don't do anything that hurts, etc. Hopefully it gets better soon. I'm gonna ice, anti-inflammatory myself to death here. But if I don't take care of it now, it can get much, much worse. If you wanna know anything about knees, The Knee Guru seems to be a pretty excellent way to start. Here's hoping that I heal already. I've missed 7 mi so far...

Not Running (Again)

Nope, today I can't even walk. I've already scheduled an appointment with an orthopedic knee specialist to figure out what exactly it is I've jacked up. Instead, I'm spending some time working on fundraising, getting life in order, and letter writing. My knee is apparantly hurt much worse than I originally thought on Saturday. But hopefully it's nothing too serious.
