So I tried out the new shoes last night (just 2 miles) and it was hard to tell if they helped at all.  I was so hyper-sensitive to everything and even the slightest twinge had me on edge.  I know this is more severe than a “worn out shoe” pain.  I was just in denial.

I decided to take the week off and just rest it.  I’ll continue icing and using the heating pad before bed.  I have an appointment with my orthopedist for Friday morning.  If he looks at it and says it’s okay, great.  If not, I’ll work on my recovery one day at a time.

I may not be able to run the Buffalo Marathon May 30th like I planned, but I can work towards the one I had planned for September.  There’s lots of other races.

Stupid knees!
