Under Pressure

Something is wrong with me knee. I have been trying to be very patient- but since my last run on Tuesday (8k) it have been sore- which is unusal because even when I had problems before with it, it only hurt when I ran. I have not run since Tuesday and it is still hurting. I am doing Ibprofrin, ice, heat, stretching, it’s not going away. I will not officially panic until Sunday- that’s when I would like to run again.

But- to make things worse, the Mailman knows about me, the runner. I saw him today and he said “Hey I see you running everyday (impossible!) when I’m being dropped off by my buddy in the mail truck and I said to him, That lady running there has 14 kids! We’re both so impressed!”

I corrected him- “I have 6 kids” I said, “and I don’t run, I shuffle.”

Somehow it’s easier to NOT run if nobody knows about. But now I have 2 postal workers who are going to be wondering where I am if I am not out there.
