Ultramarthon Wow

I read this article today, in the New York Times about an ultramarathoner.  He runs massive races of 100 miles or more.  He’s been doing it for 15 years.  The feat is amazing just for those facts alone.  With my current injury the only thing I could think of was, wow, how is he not injured?  I need to do what he’s doing.

I’m not sure I’m ready to be a vegan, but I doubt that’s what’s keeping his knees from giving up.

Oh the knee

I tried running again tonight and there was no joy.  The tape that the physical therapist applied to my knee kind of stretched or slipped or something during the day so it just wasn’t holding me in place.  I tried to tape it on my own, but the tape I used wasn’t flexible so it came apart really quickly.   Needless to say it didn’t take long before my knee tightened up and I was walking home.  I was so frustrated I was nearly in tears.  I can’t believe that this is happening to me right now.  I was doing so well, running 6 miles plus without so much as a sore muscle,  and now I can’t even run a mile without tightness and pain.

I really feel like maybe my tri adventure is coming to an end.  It’s been a month and I am not even making progress.  I don’t even know what to do now.  I’m broken.
