    alright Duncan and Back 3 mi 00:34 11:15 pace

    Just a walk :(. Trying to enjoy the beauty and the freshness of the morning without being too sad about not running.

      Nicole, I really would not even walk extensively on it, as long as there is pain. I really think you need a few days of completely resting and icing the knee. Give the inflammation time to subside. Enjoy the fresh Pineapple. It will be a huge help. All the best! I'll send you a bill later. -:)

      Glad you found a way to enjoy outside. It's also good that you miss running. When you start back up you'll be thrilled!

    Well, it wasn't a run. Hence, the just OK face. Started out to run and felt too much stress on my knee, so I eased off and walked, somewhat carefully, for my allotted time. After so many ye... read more

    This was a two-sided run. On the one hand, it felt awesome to be out running again after laying off for a week with a knee injury. The fresh, quiet morning and runner's high just can't ... read more

      Totally understand! Sounds like you made a sound decision. Very intrigued about the fresh pineapple! I know Turmeric has exceptional anti-inflammatory properties and I try to get that into my smoothies, eggs, vegetables, etc. as often as possible.

  4. Still waiting for my knee to get better. I was hoping for a run this morning, but I can sense all is still not right. Patience, patience, patience...

      People that wait and endure patiently become highly successful. No author. I didn't just make this up :)

      One of the most overlooked qualities of good runners is PATIENCE. You have it, Nicole. You'll be back to pounding the pavement in no time.

      I was just reading about this in a Runners World, it reckoned most injuries heal in 10 days, not sure about that, but, rest up, it will get better.

    Still happy.... Overall, the whole family remained remarkably chipper even though what we thought would be a four hour hike became a seven hour hike.

    This hike was a cakewalk in comparison with yesterday. An actual trail to follow? That's a novel idea. The downward slope and some big steps down creek beds made it slow going though. My s... read more
