<p>Good morning, TEAM LIT!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Slammed busy, so I'll give a knee update and my workout and be done...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Official Diagnosis: Knee Contusion. Structurally everything is fine. I whacked my knee so hard that everything internally got seriously stunted, or bruised if you will. Area is still very tender. Fluid got trapped in the knee that continued to put pressure everywhere it was banged up. Doctor moved that fluid around, and instantly certain things felt better. Things should continue to heal on their own. Might be a few weeks or longer before I'm back to where I was, but I should be back to social activities in only a few weeks or less if things continue to heal and I continue to force bend the knee back to normal range of movement, thereby breaking up the fluid build up and stretching the bruised tendons involved.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Me...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Kept the streak alive this morning. Trotted very, very easily for a half hour. Listened to Dropkick Murphies Live on St. Patrick's Day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Great day, Tri-peeps, and thanks for the support and healing vibes. It's good. I'll live. These things happen. My turn was up. Nothing more.</p>

<p>That's good news, Thor!  Did you happen to mention to the doctor that you continue to run every day?  :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4 mile run this morning for me.  Left calf started complaining about halfway through.  Not sure what's up with that, it's been real unhappy this week for some reason.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>No evening workout, we're headed out into the woods to go camping with the family.</p>

<p>Thanks.</p>

<p>No, I did not mention to the doctor that I've kept my streak alive. But he did ask me if I've been able to run (two different things), to which I said, "Sort of. I try do do what I can each morning. It isn't much, and I can't go any where near my normal pace. It's more like a really slow trot. But it does make the knee feel better." To which he replied, "Oh. Good. You are good. What's happening is that when you try to run, the fluid in the knee is breaking up. That is taking pressure off the bruised areas. So it should feel better."<br><br>
Later he said, "I want you to continue doing that, and if you can get on the bike. It might hurt at first, but try to get the knee so that you can ride the bike. That will force the fluid to break up faster than you can most other ways. Try the eliptical if running hurts."</p>

<p>Great news Thor.  Judging from the conversation with the doctor I assume it was not our common ortho since he would know not to bother asking if you are running <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/blush.gif" style="width:18px;height:18px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>

<p>Good to hear the diagnosis Thor. I think I missed where you whacked your knee.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Whacked my shin on a hockey stick today. Bike commute (17 in at 19 mph; 10.8 home easy) and street hockey at lunch.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hopefully a long Bagelry Biker ride tomorrow (looks like the route is about 58 miles with 2K of climbing, around Farmington/Milton/Rochester NH area).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Otherwise a relaxing weekend (I hope).</p>

<p>Great news Thor!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>For me today it all started at 4:20AM...actually that is when I got my tired butt out of bed...actual workouts started at 5:20AM:</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>AM</strong> - 2,500m in the fish bowl - 300m warm up, 8 x 50m drills, 12 x 100m @20 sec, 8 x 50m drills, 200m cool down</p>
<p>I felt great doing the 100s, although I can't really get any faster than 1:56/100m.  So frustrating, but at least my last two were my fastest.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>PM</strong> - 7.2 miles out running, at 45 minutes inserted 10 minutes of Z4 (~7:13/mile, felt good).  Total run took just about an hour.  I started slow running with a couple guys from my office, around 9:00/mile pace, it was a good warm up for me.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a stellar day eveyone.</p>

<p>BRICK late this morning.  1:34 on the bike and 48 min on the run.  This, along with a sprint I'm doing on Sunday, will complete 33 weeks of training.  One last week of high volume next week, then 3 weeks of taper.</p>

<p>Happy Friday, everyone!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Wound up just running easy for 30 minutes yesterday.  Just had that "I don't want to train at ALL today" so I cut my 1 hr negative split run down to 30 min of recovery. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Taught 1 hr of Zumba this morning at the YMCA and lifted weights.  Going to head out for a 1 hr ride once it cools off a bit.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thor-- excellent news!!!</p>

<p>55min ride in the oven. Felt like 90 something, not sure what it was. I was sweating before I got to the end of the driveway.  Intervals today, 3x8min @ ~275watts or as close as I could since it was open roads</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Then PM run of 3.6 miles @ 45min in 95 heat index. Holy crap, 20oz water was not nearly enough. I'm still sweating an hour later.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dayum it's hot out.</p>

6-mile run by myself. I was feeling sluggish after 2 miles so I decided to pick up the pace. That woke me up and I found I can maintain a faster pace.<br><br>
Great news on the knee Thor! Keep the streak alive.
