National Day of Running!

Happy National Day of Running!!

I'm bummed that I can't run today. I like to engage in the fun of celebrating a day like this (and there are some fun virtual 5Ks to participate in - and if you're really lucky, group runs in some places!). However, I'm supposed to be resting my knee. 

I'm also not playing volleyball tonight because of the knee. BUT my boyfriend's littlest brother has a baseball game this evening so we'll go to that. The night won't be totally lost of all fun! I'm also going to at least take a walk this evening after the game...Even if it's something as short as a mile or two. I'm sure my boyfriend won't mind going for a short walk with me. At least he better not!

Last night I looked and found ways to tape a knee for stability so I'll be trying those out.  I'm going to pick up some KT tape at the sports store tonight and work on taping it.  Even though it'll be a short, light walk I'm going to tape it before we head out. Hopefully it does the trick! I found some different methods of taping so I'm sure it'll be trial and error as far as figuring out which style will work for me. I'm not fond of the idea of having to tape anything before  a run, but if that's what I need to do in order to practice safe running, then that is what I will do!

My knee is still a bit sore but does seem better today.  I'm not sure walking the dogs last night was the greatest idea. With their excitement some sudden stops, twists, and other sometimes interesting body positions. I may have twisted it a bit more than I should have.  I don't think I did any damage to it or made it any worse.  It still isn't as bad as it had been so I'm hoping it's still just a little sore because it needs to set in place a bit longer. 

Well that's about it for now... I have to get moving so I can get to that baseball game.  Hope your week is going well!!
