Yesterday I made an appointment to see a knee doctor- thanks Erika for the info! They can't see me until a week from today.. bummer. Oh well. I'm glad that I have it set up though. Jon jokes that I'll be all better by then... fat chance!
So, want to know what else I did yesterday?? I bought my own personal torture device to help me with me IT-band issues. A foam roller. I've used it before at the gym, but not for IT-band issues. Holy crud... it is so painful!! I had to watch videos to make sure I did it right- haha. As long as it helps me heal faster, it will make up for the fact that I bought myself a torture device (I hope). This week I also went out and bought new shoes... so hopefully this will all help!
PS: don't mind the awful picture...
I'm still debating the January marathon. I've gotten so caught up in all of this, that I forgot that I was doing this all for fun. I don't HAVE to run it. I won't be made fun of if I don't because I'm injured- I'll probably be more consoled more than anything. My husband will probably sigh a breathe of relief to himself haha.... this isn't me saying that I'm not running it, but I know it is possibility. I just got so excited that it's on New Years Day and it's on a Saturday!! That's a small part of why I'm so disappointed at the possibility of not running it. We will see though. It all depends on how I am feeling this week and what my doc says. Cross your fingers!!!
