What's Going On with Your Knee?

Okay, please don't let me discourage you from running.
I've been posting a lot of my running injuries in my blog,
and I really don't want to discourage you from running.
This IS my honest journey to a healthier life, and
that sometimes includes the not-so-fun injuries that
can come along the way.
It includes the mistakes and pitfalls I experience.
I ran 7 miles on Thursday, and I ran the last mile in 9 minutes.
That's fast for me.
What lesson did I learn?
Hurting my a knee can be the outcome of running faster and pushing yourself after
you've already run 6 miles.
I've been doing R.I.C.E. for the past 3 days.

I weighed myself on Saturday, and I'm at a "stand still."
No loss.
I would be frustrated, but I'm being patient.
It was before my TOM.
It probably doesn't help that my knee is swollen and retaining some fluid in it to
It's looking better today, so I will attempt running 3 miles tomorrow morning.
I'll let you know how it goes.

Eating clean today, and working on arms!

Have a happy and healthy day!

I am so sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your knee. It is fustrating to not be able to give 100% because of an injury. It looks like you are doing all the right things, hope that you feel better.
