Monday, you’re here already? It seems like it was JUST Friday! This weekend was a busy one full of babies. Seriously. Friday night we threw a baby shower for my friend Jen, and Sunday we went to visit Jeff’s cousin and their new baby. In between that baby sandwich, I got in a couple of decent runs and got a little concerned about my knee. So today’s musings are pretty runner-heavy, but I need some advice, people:
1) Inner knee trouble. Internet research makes me think this is more serious than outer knee stuff-that I relate back to my IT band. This inner knee pain is worse when I’m not running than when I am. Does diminish after some rest, but just feels different than my IT band issues. Hoping it’s nothing serious, I’m going to keep an eye on it.
2) “Recovery Week”. I’ve had a few people tell me, as well as some internet plans corroborate, that after increasing mileage for about 3-4 weeks, you need a week of less mileage to let your body recover. Seems like a solid idea-how much less do I need to run? And do I sub in other exercise instead of running, or legitimately just slow down for a week to let muscles rebuild? I don’t know.
Staying pretty busy at work lately, so that’s all I have! Help a sister out if you’ve got some advice!
