I had a few solid weeks of training and I was settling in to the routine nicely. Then, I suffered a set back. I've got pain in my left knee when I run. I noticed that my knee felt a little different for the last few weeks, but it wasn't troubling at first. Then on Wednesday, during my run commute in, I felt some more intense pain. Since then, I can feel some swelling (I think) even when I'm stationary. I feel it when I bike, too. Not good.
The bad news: I doubt I'll be able to run the Oklahoma City Marathon with my friend from ABQ on May 1. But who knows?
The good news: I have an appointment on Friday with an orthopedic doctor that has a very good reputation in the runner / triathlete community. So, hopefully I'll be in good shape.
Until then, more swimming, lifting, and (eek!) elliptical. I need to do this right so I'll be in good shape for Louisville.
