So... I am now officially scared that once I get back to running I will be a huge, fat, slow slob. Thoughts like this do go through my mind and I'm not afraid to admit it. Of course I get ridiculed by my friends (and my wife) when I say stuff like this and I have flashbacks to when I went on a diet but seriously, my knee has been so f'd up that I'm afraid to even go for a walk. :(

On the up side I'm only 181 and it could be much worse. MUCH worse. But even if the weight is not sky high, my fitness is pretty darn low as it's been a solid three weeks now since I have run at all. In those three weeks I have ridden a trainer twice, ridden outside once and walked up some stairs twice. Help.

Not to be all about doom and gloom though, I saw my PT today and he said it's pretty obvious that I'm doing the right thing but my inflammation is not going away in spite of the fact that my IT band is getting looser. The solution? Drugs of course. Say hello to anti-inflammatory pills (that's Ibuprofen to you and me) twice/day. And honestly, since they were making me feel about 1,000 percent better each time I took them I would have suggested I take them if he had not. Here's hoping it helps.

Oh yeah, and he said I could ride my bike and use the elliptical trainer now. Nice. And as if to prove to me that God does exist, I got home and saw an invitation from Ryan D to go riding tomorrow. Yes. Thank you Ryan. And then tomorrow night I will do another trainer workout. GO!
