(Runnin’ on bum knees, runnin’ on empty… does it work? Kinda?)
Happy Wednesday, readers! I have fabulous (maybe) news!
I had a PT appointment last night, and it went so well that my physio said I could increase my treadmill running to three minutes next time, instead of just two! But wait, it gets better.
At the end of my session, I mentioned that I have a race scheduled for this coming Sunday. (The very same race, in fact, that was my goal return-from-injury race last year… hmm… what is it about spring that makes me so injury-prone?)
After kind of laughing at me, my physio gave me the OK to try to run it! Well, run-walk it very gently, but still! She gave me the same stern “If it starts hurting AT ALL you need to stop your race” talk that she gave me before the WFPL5K, but otherwise I have her blessing. Wahoo!!
Now I just have to hope and pray and cross all my appendages that it goes okay and that I don’t make my knee worse. Cross your fingers for me!!
If you were just coming back from a knee injury, how would you approach a race? What run-walk intervals would you try?
