I still had hopes my body would "be there" on Sunday and my knee would not react so harshly to impact. It kind of did. My warm-up felt a bit better. I wasn't really back firing even the way I had last week, but it was better. As I ran it clearly wasn't good, but I hadn't caused severe damage yesterday (thank you for walking) or set myself back. The course was much less rocky as well. I still was not competitive though.. I just couldn't respond and run in the woods and I just couldn't think on the run.

I wasn't firing correctly and I knew it deep down. Twice in the first 3 controls my right knee inverted. This means I was not responding to the surface of the ground and driving off of it. My legs were straightening on impact and locking on occasion. So painful and so wrong. The "thing" was not there and finally coming out of #4 I tripped one last time. Whether it was my overall tightness or compensation that led to this doesn't matter, my body was off and my left leg twisted enough to cause damage to whatever ligament, tendon, or connective tissue runs from outside my knee down and back around to the outside of my calf. Limped my way directly back home... well directly back after heading the complete opposite way on the trail. Brain is just as screwed up as yesterday if not more.
