Damaged Goods

Yes, it's been a while. It's been an interesting summer so far. Not a lot of running as of late as I've seemed to have done some damage to a knee. I have not run for 2 weeks as of today. My knees had been bothering me a bit since the first of the month. They didn't hurt but just felt weak. I continued to run and all was well with that but when I stopped they would again feel unstable. Then two weeks ago I stepped wrong off a ladder and did some damage. I have been limping around so much that it doesn't even hurt anymore and I'm still limping.

I still don't know for sure what happened but I seem to be getting the strength back. I just hope I didn't do too much damage that it might need repair. There is some thought that it may be some sort of tick borne illness that causes issues with the joints. I pulled a tiny tick off my back that I think had been there for about 2-3 days. Otherwise I have no idea. I'll keep you posted. Going to try put a couple miles on tomorrow a.m.
