Remember how last week I got the green light to continue training so did my 10-miler on Saturday?! Well, Saturday evening the hubby was trying to help me work out some of the muscle aches and I think he might have pushed a little too hard on the muscles because Sunday morning I woke up and was in pain. I originally thought I would swap my Sunday run and Monday rest day to give my muscles a day to relax and cool back down, but Monday didn't feel great either so I kept my regular rest day as-is and just "missed" my Sunday run. Tuesday I went out to run - nice and easy - and around mile 1.5 the back of my left knee was clicking and I pulled the plug real quick (I've never had anything like that before and was pretty nervous, so walked the rest of the 4 miles). I decided I'd walk my other two midweek "runs" and wait to see what the physical therapist said when I went on Friday. As you can see from Saturday, it was another walk.. My PT said that she didn't want to give me the thumbs up on running at least until she saw me another couple of times to see how my body was reacting to the exercises/ stretches she was giving me. I technically had a 25 mile run on Saturday, so she said I could walk the amount of time it normally would have taken me, so a 4 hour walk was what I did... I will do a separate post on the PT appointment, but I'd say it was more positive than I was expecting, so hopefully that's a good sign!

How were your workouts this past week?
