Happy Training Day!! (My Knee - Part II)

Happy Training!  Today is the first day of our 30 week training program. Lucky for me Day 1 was a "Rest" day.  On the first day of IMAZ training I went to the doctor and was sent for an x-ray of my knee.  The doctor told me everything I already knew. 

(1)  I'm getting old
(2)  I am carrying more weight than I should be
(3)  I was probably not properly trained for the race and my body is in shock.

Translation:  I'm old, fat and out of shape! 

I guess I need to be more careful when jumping into races.  I get the message.  UNDERSTOOD!

The doctor sent me for an x-ray and the results came back positive.  Nothing is torn or ripped.  He gave me some meds for pain and swelling and it really took the edge off.  He said to rest a bit and ease back into training.  Ease back into training.  The doctor also recommended that I check my shoes to make sure they are not too worn. 

For now, I'm icing and elevating.  I'm going to be ready for action soon. 


  1. I hope it feels better soon!! Injuries are the worst.

  2. Be kind to your body and give it the time it needs to heal.
