I was so disappointed.
I was up to running 4 straight miles, something I have never done and that 10k was actually feeling like something I could accomplish. However, having had family member who have had knee and hip problems from running I knew that it was not something I wanted to ignore and end up permanently injured. I decided to not be stubborn and go with the advice I had been give. I am currently taking a break from my 10k training. I am going to try a short run (like 1-2 miles) on the track around Sunday after almost a week and half off and see how it feels.
I normally would have used this as an excuse to completely throw in the towel and be done until my knee was better, which would have ended up being well after it was better. I have decided to try to 30 Day Shred and see how that fairs with my knee. I did the first workout yesterday and I didn't feel the knee pain during or after the workout, so that is a good sign. My knee is still somewhat sore, but I can feel the difference between the original soreness and it hurting from new impact, so to speak.
