Hoka trainers on
2 x 100m warmup, stretches, drills
100m - 15.65
2 x 25 x single leg squat jumps
25 x single leg step up jump
3 x 100m - 15. 69, 14.90, 14.62This is not exactly fast, but it's much faster than I've able to run in weeks. I do feel terribly out of shape. Just running a brisk 100m tires me and I feel out of breath, which is silly for a 100m. I am almost able to run with normal stride and I didn't feel any swelling afterward. 100m though, is about the furthest I can run right now without a small amount of pain.
My MRI showed some wear on meniscus and articular cartilage, but apparently not requiring surgery. They recommended a steroid injection followed later by a lubricant injection, probably Euflexxa. With my knee beginning to improve, and the likely possibility I may sit out the '19 season, I wonder if I should go through with these injections? I have an appointment Monday. I think it's important to my health to be able to do track workouts even if I am going to sit out, so I guess I will. I still haven't definitively ruled out Poland, but I would have to see some pretty immediate improvement. I'm in a pretty deep hole right now in regards to fitness. People talk about cross training, but there is nothing like a sprint interval workout on the track. It's good to be able to sprint.
I requested the MRI report but they didn't send it.
I'm fat, probably over 150lbs. Seeking to reduce.
