It only took a tenth of a mile for the pain in my knee to return. Almost a mile in and the pain was coming and going, it was always present but the severity was changing. Mile two would be the last mile, not being able to bend my leg was enough for me to stop. Not wanting to face reality I walked for about one hundred yards and tried to run again, I got to the top of the hill near our house and was unable to run the final quarter mile.
What do I do now? I have to go to a doctor but I know what I'm going to be told, "stay off of it for four to six weeks and we will go from there." This is very selfish but that is not an option, unless it's bone spurs or a tear of a ligament I will be running in twenty-seven days. The pain is present when sitting, walking and kneeling, squatting has also become a challenge. A call will be made to my doctor tomorrow morning, I'm not sure if anyone has any idea what the problem may be but I'd love to hear something just to put my mind at ease.
The one good thing about today and my run this afternoon was my blood sugar. I was at 92 when I arrived home from work and at 164 when I returned home from my "run". I'm happy to know that I haven't lost my diabetes running management skills in a week. It was also great to be outside and running, nothing beats a nice run on a fall day. I may have hit a little bump in the road but I will be running again and it will be sooner rather than later.
