After a fairly good 8k Sunday morning run with the hubby, I was psyched. We had lunch at The Fort Strip and, over lunch, all the positive energy in my body told me that I could join Asian Hospital’s RUNew this coming Sunday. Since there’s no 10k in the race, we decided that we would run a relaxed 5k + 5k after the race. Woohoo!
In less than an hour, I was already at Nike Bonifacio High Street filling up the forms. That’s when all things turned sour. On the form, it said the assembly area was McKinley Hill. On a normal day, that would have added a spark of excitement to the upcoming race. But, with my ultra sensitive knee, the steep ascents and worse, downhills, would have my kneecap acting up. I left the store dismayed.
To make things worse, by the end of the day, my kneecap had flared up again. Probably my knees way of telling me: What makes you think you can race already? Relax. Be patient. I’m going to get better soon. Well, what can I do, I’m bullheaded.
