Carly T. hi friends! i've mis...

Hi friends! I've missed you all! The good news is I'm alive and survived my summer o' physics. The bad news is my "knees" (really the area directly behind my knees - the back of my legs) are still quite the mess. The pain (in both legs) has not gone away since it first developed early/mid April. I saw a new doctor who seemed very knowledgable and determined to figure out what's going on. First thing he wants to rule out is a bulging disk/pinched nerve. He said in people my age it usually presents as pain in the extremities, not back pain. Soooo I have an MRI schedule tomorrow to see if that's the case. I just want to figure it out so I can get back to training... or exercise of any sort! I can't even do cross-training (or walk fast/any significant distance) without pain. Totally sucks. Feeling very out of shape (and, well, probably am very out of shape now). I hope you are all in much better health and having a good time training for fall races! :)
