Firstly, apologies for this being a day late :(. I like to get these out on Sunday as a summary of the week, but nekminnit it was Monday! This week has been a weird one – some emotional ups & downs, let downs & inconveniences, but all in all it was manageable, and I was really glad for how close I am to my family this week. When I hear of people who don’t get along with their parents, for whatever reason, I feel so amazingly sad for them. Mine are my bedrock, and I can’t imagine going through life without them!
Amongst other things, a big annoyance for me at the moment is revolving around my left knee being uncooperative, and it’s going it in such a way that an X-ray, ultrasound & MRI all can’t see what’s wrong. My doctor’s starting to think I’m making it all up, and now I’m even wondering if I am! The pain is only in my left knee, and only happens when I straighten my leg and lock my knee. I discovered this when cooling down and stretching by touching my toes after a run, and it was such a sharp and sudden pain it took me by surprise, and I’m no pansy when it comes to pain! That was about a month and a half ago, and it isn’t getting any better by itself. I went to see a local GP to get referrals for some scans, and these have come up with nada; yet it’s still hurting! I’ve been told to ‘wait and see’, but I’m not really okay with that plan. I’m having to run less because I can’t stretch my legs after, which means I’m bordering on being a cripple for at least 3 days after with BADDDD leg muscle pains. I never get leg pain after a run normally – just if I do leg day with weights. Not being able to run is actually having a detrimental affect on my mood too, which took me by surprise!
