Nuts-o and knees.

Things have been nuts-o here. I had a tight deadline, which meant I was staying up late and trying to squeeze in work whenever I had a free moment. I also had a knee thing.

I didn't want to write about it because I feared that doing so would give it life and make it worse (weird? sure.). So I didn't say anything and now the knee thing is gone so my weirdness may just have paid off!

But it was a drag. It crept up on me on Wednesday. My knee just started to hurt. On Thursday, it hurt a little more but I ran anyway. On Friday, it hurt for real. I took the day off. When it still hurt on Saturday, I skipped my planned 5K race and secretly felt pretty OK with that since it was pouring rain here.

Then, Sunday. The knee felt fine! Totally better, like nothing had ever happened. I ran 5.5 easy and enjoyable miles. Monday, easy and enjoyable 4.5. Yesterday, I ran 4 through an evening drizzle. All three runs were grade-A fall runs and (knock on wood) my knee hasn't bothered me one bit since Saturday.

I feel like I dodged a bullet!

I've got a lot of catching up to do but I'll leave you with a giveaway to check out:

Mel -- Tall Mom on the Run is hosting an AWESOME Brooks for Her giveaway! She's giving away a pink jacket that is just too cute. Enter here.

Have a great (half over) week!

Felice,
Glad your knee thing went away!! Maybe if I hadn't talked about mine, it would've gone away.... I guess that is what I get for being a whiner!! Haha!! I go to the Ortho tomorrow - fingers crossed!! So glad yours is feeling better though!!!! Happy Running my friend!!!

Those phantom body pains are so interesting and I love it that they just "go away." Glad you could run happily!

Denise said...

Whew! I'm glad it went away. i hate the mysterious aches and pains.

I do the same thing - refuse to mention when something seems 'off' in the hopes that it will go back where it came from. Seemed to have worked for you, so yay! Maybe your knee just wanted to get out of the 5K. ;)

Glad the knee is feeling better. I hate those little pain twinges that get you all panicky.

not weird at all to not talk about it!! I don't like to dwell on the negative so I try not to put it out there for others to feed on.

glad you are coming around and the deadline is behind you

Glad you were able to ward off some real problems!

Very good that you listened to your knee & gave it the rest it wanted - now - no pain! YEAY!

Quix said...

I think it may have been your body just requiring rest. I've had that happen too and after a few days of taking it easier - *poof*! Glad you're back at it!
