No More Running

I have really been lacking the motivation to blog lately. And I didn't do the Virtual Run for Sherry Arnold as I had planned. Why?

Well, I went to the knee doctor. For a while now, both of my knees have been bothering me and swelling up quite a bit after any kind of exercise. It has gotten really bad ever since that 5.5 mile run, so I decided to get it checked out.

The news was not very good. I have patellar subluxation in both knees, but because I have ignored it for years, it is extremely advanced and has already done lasting damage to the cartilage in my knees. He said I am going to have to undergo about 4 weeks of some kind of electric stimulation therapy, followed by who knows how long of actual physical therapy. I won't run again for a really long time, and I can't do anything but swim, pilates, and occasionally use the elliptical until then (no cycling, yoga, running, etc).

So I guess I am just wondering if I should even keep up the blog, now that I am out of the competitive fitness world for quite sometime. I can see my blogging getting really boring really fast when all I have to talk about is school and swimming/strength exercises, so I'm just at a loss.

  1. you should definitely keep the blog, if for no other reason but to keep account of your fitness! Sometimes it's a great place to vent your frustrations, and that way you can look back and see how you pushed through an injury and came back stronger than before.
