When I got home I was feeling frustrated and depressed, and realized I was only 1.1 miles away from hitting the 1000mile mark for the year. I finished my stretches and thought to myself, I am not going to run again for the rest of the year so fuck it I am gonna go out and at least hit the millennium mark for the year. I geared up and headed down the bike trail for a half mile and turned around to head back. The whole time I was thinking this a stupid idea to continue to run, but I wanted a victory of some kind today.
Now where do I go from here. I am officially done for the year. I have a tattoo apt in a couple of days and combine that with the knee issues I am just going to hang up the shoes till January. I am also going to seek professional help in the form of a sports physical therapist. I found out today that in Ohio you don't have to see and get a doctor's note before you can see a SPT, you can go directly to them. I am going to contact a couple of places and see what I need to do to get started.
