Recovering from micro-fracture surgery :( Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com http://steam8.fastrunningblog.com/ Fri, 19 Oct 2018 13:29:37 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Mon, Jan 07, 2013 http://steam8.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-07-2013.html I ran 2 miles on the treadmill this morning before the MRI just so that it would be hurting when I went it. &nbsp;The MRI showed that the micro-fracture has failed. &nbsp;I am sad beyond words. &nbsp;I go in next week to meet with my orthopedic surgeon. &nbsp;He is suppose to be the best around. &nbsp;Tiger Woods even had him operate on him. &nbsp;It didn't do me any good. &nbsp;Surgery again. :( Mon, 07 Jan 2013 07:00:00 Sat, Jan 05, 2013 http://steam8.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-05-2013.html <p>8 miles on the elliptical :(</p><p>&nbsp;I am going in for an MRI on my knee on Monday. &nbsp;I ended up seeing my orthopedic doc this week because my sister fell trail running and has to have knee surgery. &nbsp;As soon as the doc saw me in his office he started laughing and asked how many miles I was running even though I am not suppose to be running. &nbsp;I said....NONE! &nbsp; If I run, I am in pretty bad pain and can't do much for a week or so later, even turning over in bed hurts my knee. &nbsp;He looked concerned, so I asked if that was not normal for 8 months after microfracture. &nbsp;He said that after 6 months, I should be able to run without pain although he wouldn't recommend it.&nbsp;&nbsp;He said that we need an MRI and depending on what it showed he will probably have to go back in and take a look. &nbsp;I got home and called my hub and started to cry. &nbsp;I really don't want to go through this again!!! &nbsp;Even the elliptical and bike hurt my knee. &nbsp;I will probably be in pain for the next couple of days from doing 8 on the elliptical. &nbsp;I did 13.1 on New Years and have been paying for it all week. &nbsp;I just can't stand to see everyone running half marathons on FB and not be able to join in on the fun. :( &nbsp;</p><p>I have been doing so many projects on my house and have turned into a clean freak. &nbsp;I have to have some outlet and nothing makes me feel good like running. &nbsp;I am getting ready to paint my laundry room today, then I am taking my two girls to the Justin Bieber concert tonight. &nbsp;It should be a fun girls night out with my two cuties!&nbsp;</p> Sat, 05 Jan 2013 07:00:00 Fri, Dec 07, 2012 http://steam8.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-07-2012.html I don't even think anyone even looks at my blog anymore.....but I just had to share. &nbsp;I ran 2 miles on the treadmill today! &nbsp;I have been running about a mile or two a week on my treadmill just to see how my knee does. &nbsp;It usually hurts really bad the rest of the day and the whole next day. Today I did 6.5 on the elliptical and thought I would just try my knee out again. The first .5 hurt and then the last 1.5 felt sooooo good! &nbsp;I ran it in 16:13 and thought I was going to puke! &nbsp;I LOVE TO RUN! &nbsp;I can't tell you how it felt today. &nbsp;I'm in LOVE! ha!
