Day 1: Comeback Trail

3 miles very easy… Click here to learn more…

Well I finally got a solid reading of my MRI by an orthopedic physician. I have a small tear in the medial meniscus that leaves a flap that’s catching sometimes. This was causing swelling and some fluid buildup. I also had sprained the medial collateral ligament. However, the doctor did not feel surgery was mandatory and since I had rested the knee he gave me the green light to try to complete my training for the marathon. He gave me a cortisone shot yesterday. Today I wore a knee brace and covered 3 very easy miles.  Easy as in slow, but it wasn’t easy. My body did find that jogging rhythm and I wasn’t out of breath, which are good signs. Overall it went better than I feared but not quite as well as I hoped. I have 7 weeks left to rebuild until the Chicago Marathon October 11, 2015. Thanks for your continuing support on this journey. Click here to support my run!
