Great news came out of my ortho appointment yesterday: No meniscus tear, just bruised bones.
And the doc didn't think I was crazy to do NYC. He said that he understood how crazy we, runners, are.
He said that bruised bones take about 6 weeks to heal. I'm sure that with a marathon mine will take longer. I'll stop running a few days if the pain gets back to the level I had two weeks ago. There's still minor pain, but barely.
And with that news, guess who went for a run last night?
I meant to go 5 to 10 minutes but once I got running turned it into 30. If you're a runner then you know that there's no way to replace that feeling that you get on the roads.
It feels nice to be back.
