I kept hiking while training and was still feeling pretty good. Until I upped my mileage and my pace. Then the knee I fell on was waking me up at night throbbing and hurting about the first 5-10 minutes of a run.
I made an appt with the orthopedic doctor.
Funny, I was just reading A Man Called Ove and came across this line:
“One of the most painful moments in a person's life probably comes with the insight that an age has been reached when there is more to look back on than ahead."
― Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove
I don't feel like that is painful, but it got me thinking. I'm going to do the half marathon (against the judgment of my dr). I'm going to be proactive with my arthritis, and I'm going to look ahead and make the next 30years or so the best I can make them! I'm running out of time!! LOL
Wish me luck! A few prayers would be helpful too.
