Just popping in for a quick update on the knee situation. It felt pretty much back to normal when I woke up this morning. That, combined with the fact that temps in Milwaukee cracked 60 degrees today (!), meant I was going to test it on a run for sure. I decided to push my hill workout to tomorrow and just run easy today. I ran 7.2 easy miles in short sleeves (!) and had no knee pain!
Of course I strapped on the ice pack as soon as I got home. Zooey the cat was there to make sure I kept my knee above my heart.
It is still feeling good now, but the true test will be how it feels tomorrow. The pain didn’t start initially until the day after running. I am crossing my fingers and toes that it will still feel fine tomorrow. If that’s the case, hill repeats here I come!
