drjen~WTG for your DS! What a great job! And congrats on your 11...you can TOTALLY do 17 next week!
hellokitty~I'm glad that you got some good advice from your running store. I hope it helps quickly!
I'm so glad you're feeling better today. I was worried last night! You're definitely going to feel a little weak when you get back out there, but I bet you'll be surprised at how quickly the training bounces back...it's still there, just a little buried. Besides, you HAVE to do it, or you'll renege on our deal from January!
mothercat~Have a blast volunteering. I had SO much fun last weekend! Just make sure you wear lots of sunscreen and comfy shoes!
mommabelle~I agree, can you try an insert in that shoe only? I might start with a cheaper insert, like a Spenco. If it helps but doesn't feel like enough, then you could look into the more expensive semi-custom or custom inserts.
rr~I pleasantly surprised myself today. Had to work this morning, so I was kind of figuring that today would be a wash as far as a workout, but I actually got myself motivated to get out this afternoon for a bike ride. I ended up cutting it a bit short because storm clouds were starting to roll in, but I got 18.5 miles in, and my knee didn't hurt at all
. I could still feel it a little, if you know what I mean, but it didn't hurt!
