So, it won't be quite a full week of rest, but that is OK. I feel much more like myself now and I am glad I took this week off. I did some research on overtraining and I identified with pretty much every symptom I read about, so chances are good that's what was going on.
Tomorrow though, I'll ease back into activity.
Well... sort of...
See, on doctor's orders, I have to run tomorrow.
Yes, you read that right.
I have the ultrasound of my tibia on Tuesday, to see if there's any soft tissue damage there. The sports med specialist told me to go out for a run and "get the tissue good and aggravated, so we can get a good look at what is going on".
Well okey dokey!
I will take that knee brace out for its first real run tomorrow.
After not having run in so long, I am not sure if I'll be able to do much... I suspect my cardiovascular health has taken a bit of a nosedive... so I may have take it easy. We'll see...
I have this feeling I'll be setting up an appointment with my physio guy for later this week, after I've followed those particular doctor's orders!
Oh yeah... and as if that's not enough to jump back into the swing of things with, tomorrow night, I start swimming lessons!
Big day tomorrow!
