Just got back from this week’s trip to the doc. The good news: I won’t see him again until a week from Wednesday. The bad news: I have more ligament stripping in my future for that day.

It’s been just a few days shy of a month and this has got me down. I’ve never had a running-related issue that wasn’t well on the way to being resolved (if not completely resolved) in a month.

I’m going to try some gentle, easy running while I have the prodding-free time and see what happens. And based on what happens over the next week, I’ll make a decision about my upcoming races.

Honestly, I’ll be glad to see 2009 go; I’ve had more health-related downtime in the last 14 months than I have previously had in my entire running career all combined.

    You\’re not allowed to say ligament stripping in front of me ever again! That made me pucker a little.

    I\’m with you out with the old (2009) and in with the new (2010 and good health and all things good!).

    You\’ll be at it in no time and I\’ll be chasing you from afar!
