Steven Dybvad – Personal Journal – April 1, 2014

by Steven Dybvad

I’m just getting so frustrated with my knee. This morning I got up, went to breakfast and my knee felt just fine, no pain or soreness at all, but as soon as I started running on the track today I could feel the soreness in my knee before I even made it halfway through my first lap. Of course I acted very stupid, continuing to run, hoping that I could somehow workout the soreness by running more. After each lap I ran, the soreness in my knee increased and yet I continued to run. By the time I was reaching my two mile marker, the soreness in my knee changed into pain and at that point I had to stop, frustrated that my body wouldn’t allow me to run any farther. I realize and understand that I’m supposed to listen to my body, when I feel pain it’s telling me to stop, but my obsessive compulsive personality tells me that if I don’t complete my exercise routine I’m going to let it bother me for the rest of the day. I just need to be smarter and take care of myself, the last thing I want to do is injure myself even more, or permanently for that matter.
