For the first three days, I iced my knees and right shin twice a day. I took ibuprofen around the clock, and turmeric twice a day. (More on that for another post.) And then I just chilled. And today I ran a short, simple and slow 2 miles run/walk with a longer walk portion than usual, especially for such a short run (6:00/3:15).
And I felt ok! Sluggish at first, but ok! I will survive this slowdown. I will catch back up to my long runs at the end of this week, shin and knees permitting.
Yay for rest!
