So, I've written about my naggy knee a couple of times and now it is fixed. Thank goodness for a supportive chiropractor. I had an appointment already booked for last night and that was the only reason I hadn't been trying to get in faster. When I told him about my sudden knee issue - he started to poke around my lower leg and when he touched one part of my calf, I nearly shot through the roof.
He continued to poke a bit before announcing that my Fibula was stuck. 10 minutes of adjusting later - the knee pain was gone. I iced it last night just to be careful and, while my leg is still a bit tender, the crunching pain beneath my kneecap is miraculously gone.
The Doc told me it is fairly common - he's had it happen to him more than a few times in the sports he plays...he said it is likely a result of my back to back speedy races last weekend and my having not been pushing myself to that level in training because I was trying to heal my other calf.
Makes total sense. I'm just happy to be able to climb stairs without crying today.
Oh...and I've lost 4lbs since Monday. That too.
Sunday, I run Loop Around the Lake Half in Chestermere. Two flat loops around Chestermere Lake. If my knee is back to 100% by then - I may turn on the speed and see if I have 2:15 in the tank. If not - well, technically it's just a training run anyway. Most importantly, I just want to have fun and rock the race.
