Knee Not Feeling So Good

Posted by katrinwolfe on Apr 10, 2011 5:46:21 PM

On Monday I started my new job at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown as the Director of the Wellness Center.  It was a crazy week trying to figure everything out and getting started. I am still very green but I will hopefully fit in very well.  The Center is new and I am the first Director.  It is a little disorganized now but I hope to get everything in order.  It is also hard because there is only two weeks left of classes and then one week of finals before summer hours begin.

 

I did get most of my running.  On Friday I was suppose to do 7 miles but only did 5 miles.  Yesterday (Saturday), was my long run.  I had 20 miles scheduled.  I hate numbers right now so I figured I would do 3 hours.  I did fine but after the run has been hard.  I tweaked my left knee.  It has been sore ever since.  No idea what I did.  After I stopped running my knee started bothering me.  I have elevated, iced, heated, and took some Tylenol.  I may take it very easy this week with little exercise and what I do is very low impact.  A little nervous having this injury at the end of the training.  My knee is not really swollen but still not feeling very good.

 

One problem for my knee is I have not really rested my knee.  I have played golf the past two days and went for walk.  I really need to take it easy.

 

The final round of the Masters was today.  I am a huge golf fan.  It was a great tournament with a great finish.  I am also excited because the next Major I will be in attendence.  I am going to the U.S. Open at Congressional in June.  I will be on site Wednesday for the practice round and Thursday for the first round.

 

I am hoping for a good week with a quick recovery of my knee!
