Mixed bag this week. The positive was that I executed a couple of pretty good runs and am starting to feel like my old self. The other positive is that I have stayed on top of PT and x-training and my knee feels like a non-issue at this point. Or at least it did. The one negative was a nasty fall I took trail running on Saturday. I had to cut the run a little short and wound up getting nine stitches in my left knee (the same one that had been injured). It doesn't appear that I did any significant damaged, but I am bruised and swollen. The time needed to recover from this fully is about 10 - 14 days. My hope is that I can do at least some light running in the next 3 - 5 days. The bone in the area is bruised and it is too swollen and painful to do much right now.
Here is my knee after it was cleaned up. I think I gored out enough people already with the before pictures.
