I’ve been doing a lot of this lately. (That’s a pillow case draped over my legs, I was wearing a short-ish dress.)

Last night I stopped in at Athletico to get the knee checked out. There was a lot of poking and prodding and squeezing and resistance and squatting on one leg and “does it hurt when I do this?” etc. And nothing really hurt. But apparently the muscles above my left knee are really tight and possibly pulling things out of alignment. I’m getting a massage tonight to see if that helps. Although I have a feeling a sports massage is not like regular massage. I’m guessing there will be more pain involved.

But lesson learned: stretching, foam rolling, yoga, etc, is a good idea. And I’ll admit I have not been diligent with that lately.

After the appointment, my knee was a little sore (like muscle soreness, not the pain that I have when running) but I swam some laps at the local park district park. At 8pm. Because the hours for lap swimming are very limited. But I can’t sit around. Our cable hasn’t been installed yet.

Anywho, we’ll see how the massage goes, who knows, maybe that’ll do the trick and I can run Ragnar after all? (But slowly, because I have been resting a lot.) If not, it’s looking like I might be driving van #2.
