I tried...

Well there was a bit of a break in the rain and the sun poked out so I tried to get a run in today.  However, the knee wasn't cooperating and I had to cut it short.  I went to the specialist last week and he says that I have had this problem since a kid (did have knee problems then) and basically my cartlidge is slowly breaking down, there is nothing really that I can do about it and it may perhaps eventually be arthritic.  Sucks but some days are better than others with it and that is why I didn't push it today, hopefully can do a long run tomorrow.


  1. Ugh, Here's hoping you heal. Rest & heal up in between runs.

  2. Oh goodness, this doesn't sound very good. Does your running exacerbate or accelerate the deterioration? You must really like to run to continue to do so despite the pain. Personally, I don't "get" that, but applaud you for continuing. (I hope that doesn't sound bad and you get what I'm trying to say) Hugs!!
