Today’s workout (elliptical): 25 minutes
I’m still paying the price for over-training prior to my half marathon. I obviously aggravated something in my left knee that got worse as a result of the race. Since then I’ve tried to minimize impact on my knee by keeping my runs below 5 miles. Despite that, my knee continues to feel sore and I’m now experiencing pain in the heel of my left foot.
I iced my knee for about 90 minutes last night and took Aleve before I went to bed. It felt okay when I got up and though I planned to do my usual 2+ mile run this morning, I decided that a no impact workout would be a better choice. I pushed as hard on the elliptical as I would have if I’d ran and in the end I knew I made the right decision. Later today I’m seeing the company doctor (who I understand is also a runner) to get his opinion on whether my injury should be looked at by an orthopedist (please say no!).
