|Right where I want to be....|
These past few weeks have been full of mental games. This time of year is always tough for me to find motivation and enjoyment in running. Winter has settled in and I don't much feel like getting up and running alone in the dark. The motivation will return, so I am just trying to be patient. (Signing up for a race always gives me a burst of motivation, more on that in a second.) The other issue is my knee. It sill isn't 100%. However, I am not sure it is supposed to be. By all accounts, I am ahead of the curve for my recovery. And there was simply no way I could have run 30 miles a week back in July. But, there is still a fair amount of low grade, non-specific pain and discomfort. My assumption/hope is that this part of the process and it will clear up, eventually. I did find a small bump on the lateral part of my knee -- could be some type of scar tissue or cyst? It isn't painful, but I am not sure what it is. Thus, I have made an appointment with my surgeon in the New Year. If he isn't concerned about it, then I will likely take the plunge and sign up for a race. I have to get back on the horse eventually. I am suffering from a lack of confidence right now and just need to push onward and see what happens!
