Semi gross health/running thing
I thought I had tendinitis but at the beginning of this week I felt something wrench & move in my knee while standing up from sitting cross-legged... and now it's fine. Ran 1.6mi yesterday as a test. I think maybe some part of my knee was in the wrong place for about two weeks. 🤢 😱 Welp, back to it. 🏃♀️
Earlier this week I was carefully color-coding my training plans for the Philly Half Marathon and this evening I'm sitting with an ice pack on my knee stretched out over a throw pillow. Tendinitis sucks! Or maybe something else sucks, but probably tendinitis. #running
#originstory I grew up outside Philadelphia and worked in libraries (sometimes I commuted on my bike, because I was 15). Lived in NYC and Seattle for years, did various other stuff. Now I live in Philly and work at a library doing technology and still like to ride my bike.
