I am hoping that I will be able to run it with some level of comfort and ease. Up until this weekend I was fairly confident that I was going to be able to. Now I am not so sure.
I have tried to fix my knee with all the usual ways that I try to get something done. I've yelled at it, I've insulted it's mother, I've even gave it the silent treatment! Nothing. Stubborn foe.
But, I should look at the bright side. The good thing about not running is that I have LOADS of free time. Like some sort of hibernating bear, I slept in both Saturday and Sunday to the point that I think that I got too much sleep. As a result, I slept like crap for most of Sunday night. Stupid double edge sword.
So, hopefully I don't loose too much fitness. I am fully willing to rest all 3 weeks of taper and run the marathon on muscle memory alone. But, I am not naive. I will loose some speed because of this little 'break', but hopefully my friends will still talk to me.
