When a Plan Doesn't Come Together

“I love it when a plan comes together”

Yes, Hannibal Smith, we know you do.  Unfortunately, mine is not. 

Cue: Stage Left--- “nagging left knee pain”.

After spending what felt like an eternity on the DL (disabled list) while working to nurse my knee back to health from its previous state I felt like I was on the road to recovery.  Well, after easing back into activity…guess whose back?  That is CORRECT…left lateral knee pain which has ranged anywhere from mild to excruciating.

Cue: Long “Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” followed by “expletive!”

So, here I am…not exactly where I wanted to be, but non-the-less, this is where I have ended up.  That’s right, this is the point where I say to myself…you know those lofty goals of running a marathon in September and an Ultra in November (for the record that is in fact the 3rd revision of the original plan)… “Well, it’s just not going to happen as you had hoped.”

Well, I guess it wouldn’t do much good to sit around and feel sorry for myself.  It wouldn’t.  So what’s the plan moving forward?  Simple- Evaluate the next set of treatment options- this is going to happen over the next few weeks…but I figure I’ll keep you all in the loop as to how things go.  Until then, if you want to see something pretty this!

Here's hoping my come back looks like this!
