For the last two months, I have had a little pain in my left knee but nothing serious. I would just start my run, and it would go away. On Saturday, at my 5K, it didn't go away. I think it was from all the extra hills, and I am not used to running on hills.
On Monday, I didn't run on it; I did the elliptical. Tuesday, I had boot camp, and the only time it hurt a little was when we did jumping jacks. Today, I tried running on it again. Steven and I did a slow mile, and it hurt for a good half of the time. So, I am going to really focus on cross training the rest of this week and next Monday. I will do other things besides running, and I hope that will help my knee heal.
On an exciting note, I joined the Ozark Mountain Ridge Runners (OMRR) this month and told one of the officers about my weight loss. He asked me to write an article about what I have done for their monthly newsletter. I will post what I wrote when they put it in the newsletter. If you have been following my blog, it will not be anything new. I was very humbled and excited for the opportunity.
I have also been talking to Ben Davis, and we are trying to get him out here to Springfield. I am typing up a proposal to him tonight, and I hope some exciting things will come of it. Stay tuned!
