Trail Run 10:00 [1] 1.3 mi (7:42 / mi)

Easy warmup jogging. Knee feeling pretty tight and sore.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [3] 6.1 km (9:50 / km)

Felt decent in the beginning as my knee loosened up. Didn't last though as it just started to hurt more and more toward the end. Was hoping that running in the woods would be less pounding and more strength work, but apparently even just the act of repetitively lifting the knee is causing too much stress.

Felt really good to be in the woods and reading a map again.

Strength/Stretching 30:00 [0]

Looked up some good knee rehab exercises and started doing them around the house all evening. Some feel really good, although a couple (especially stepping up) were still too stressful for the knee. Hopefully if I can do these consistently for the next few weeks the muscles around the knee will be strong enough to support running again without stressing the bad tendon.

Feeling better today, but knee is still feeling swollen. Went for a nice long 2-hour walk in the sun to test things out. Don't think the knee's ready for any road running yet. Might try a bike ride later in the evening.

Still feeling like crap. Just sleeping, no running.

Wednesday Sep 2, 2009 #


Body totally worn out. Ended up spending the day in bed. Must have come down with something.

Track 20:00 [2]

Easy warmup on the track. Knee not feeling so great.

Strength/Stretching 5:00 [1]

Some moving strength/stretching exercises.

Track 15:00 [3]

Tried some fartleks on the track. Felt decent starting out, but the knee started to feel like it was swelling up and actually freezing up a bit. Decided to cut it short and take the rest of the evening off.

A little worried about the knee. Not too sure what to do.

Road Run 48:48 [2] 6.44 mi (7:35 / mi) +64m 7:21 / mi

Beautiful evening run. Legs felt absolutely awesome, practically running out from under me. Last week was all struggles at 8:00/min miles and suddenly 7:30 pace feels comfortable. Nice. Didn't notice the knee at all until I started to get tired in the last mile. Wonder if it has to do with certain muscles taking over as others get tired. Will have to find some strength exercises to avoid turning it into an injury.
